-Ongoing Activities 



Executive Director/CEO Ford presented Special Recognition Awards to Ed Walsh, Principal 
Administrative Analyst, Parking and Traffic; James Stuart, Assistant Chief Inspector, Street 
Operations Division, Muni Service Delivery; and Ken Sapp, Automotive Mechanic 
Supervisor, Woods Division, Muni Service Delivery. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford reviewed the service on New Year's Eve. There were no incidents 
or delays. 

Sonali Bose, Chief Financial Officer and Matt Hanson, City Risk Management Office 
reviewed the status of securing insurance for claims. They will provide another report to the 
Board once they have gathered additional information. 

Ken McDonald, Chief Operating Officer reviewed the status of slow speed orders in the 
Twin Peaks Tunnel. 

Director Beach requested a copy of the report regarding speeds in the tunnel. Director 
Heinicke requested that staff report on possibly increasing speed in the tunnel. C.O.O. 
McDonald stated that he would report back in February. 

8. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Emil Lawrence stated that as a white male minority, he has been passed over for various jobs 
including the position of Director of Taxi and Accessible Services. It's corrupt when friends 
from the Mayor's office are hired. Mr. Ford was picked by the Civil Service Commission to 
handle discriminatory charges at SFMTA. The SFMTA is practicing a policy of exclusion 
by not admitting taxi drivers into its administration. 

Bob Planthold requested cooperation between BART and Muni in providing public notice 
when an escalator is out of service. He had to walk two-thirds of a block to get to an 
elevator. This takes extra time and effort and puts him at risk for injury. The public is better 
serviced if notice is provided. 

Barry Taranto stated that he would rather have seen the SFMTA hire someone with more taxi 
experience but he finds Ms. Hayashi refreshing and forthcoming. Julia Rosenberg is 
unprofessional and she doesn't know the industry or its' laws. The J-Church is performing 
poorly and inspectors should monitor the line. Staff should shoot for 75% on-time 
performance by the end of the next quarter. Many people are getting on the back of the 14- 
Mission Line without paying. Fare inspectors should be put on the bus lines where the most 
egregious violations occur. Parking Control Officers need to work during the weekend and 
in the evening. 



Ronv Kolni/.ky asked that the 36-Teresita line be reinstated in his hilly neighborhood. He 
has a snn who is disabled, and who depends on caregivers. By canceling this bus, the 



SFMTA is disconnecting his neighborhood from bus service. 

Mark Gleason, Teamsters Local 665 stated that there are difficulties with labor negotiations 
in garages. In recognition of the difficult economic times, members have agreed to a one 
year freeze in wages and benefits. Members have committed to complete fidelity of Article 
22 regarding revenue control. 

Peter Witt noted that one of the priorities for the merger was to increase customer service but 
there aren't priorities for safety and driver quality of life. Mr. Witt provided a letter he wrote 
in 2005 that discussed a lack of leadership, skills, compassion and enforcement by the Taxi 
Detail. Taxi drivers don't have benefits, health care or sick pay. 

Patricia Campe-Aguilar discussed difficulties with the 37-Corbett line. Buses are leaving 
early from the terminus point. There is no "Nextbus" signage so residents don't know that 
the bus has left early. There are serious problems during the evening. Buses run every thirty 
minutes but residents have waited for one and a half hours without knowing if a bus was 
coming. Drivers should communicate to the public when something is happening. 

Martin Smith, Luxor Cab, stated that they are looking forward to working with the SFMTA 
and expressed hope that staff will look at street stands, fleet medallions and at rewarding 
companies for doing the right thing. Luxor Cab is almost completely "green". 

Branton Burke stated that for the past five and a half weeks he has been trying to resolve 
problems with the 37-Corbett. He has filed over 35 complaints since Thanksgiving and 
although he has requested a return call, he has yet to receive a response. The hybrid buses 
are breaking down at an alarming rate. When a bus breaks down, another bus needs to be put 
on the street. 

Rua Graffis stated that she had trouble transferring from BART to Muni because the elevator 
at Civic Center isn't working. The elevator needs to be re-engineered to allow access for 
scooters. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR 
ACTION AS STATED BY THE SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY 
ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL 
CALENDAR ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 
7th FLOOR.

of the Board of Directors or the public so requests, in which event the matter shall be 
removed from the Consent Calendar and considered as a separate item.

RESOLUTION 09-002 

Item 10.2 F was removed from the agenda at the request of a member of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto stated that tour buses are using the taxi stand in front of Macy's but PCO's are 
ticketing cab drivers when they use the stand. He questioned why this tour bus zone was 
being created and why cab drivers were being prevented from using their cab stand. 

William Taylor, Open Top Sightseeing, stated that the proposal only deals with the north 
side. It will help to deal with a parking issue and will replace the existing limousine zone.

REGULAR CALENDAR 

1 1 . Presentation and discussion of draft Taxicab Regulations. (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report and regulations.) (Christiane Hayashi) 

Christiane Hayashi, Director, Taxi and Accessible Services presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Emil Lawrence stated that discussions about rules and regulations have been going on for 12 
years. The new director didn't talk about cab driver income. Drivers support medallion 
holders and companies. The Director should drive a cab for a year to really find out what's 
going on. There is no grievance procedure or medical programs for drivers. Drivers have the 
right to due process. 



Barry Taranto stated that shoving rules and regulations down their throats is unfair to an 
industry that has the lowest paid workers in the city. This doesn't help drivers make money. 
Rules are okay if you make cab drivers employees of the city and county of San Francisco. 
We were promised health care. 

Bud Hazelkorn, United Taxicab Workers, expressed concern that the SFMTA could become 
more isolated than the current Taxi Commission by virtue of the amount of work it already 
does. Drivers have no rights, no benefits and make a substandard wage. Cab drivers are 
integral to the public transit puzzle and are entitled to the same rights and privileges that 
other city workers enjoy. The "rank and file" needs more representation than medallion 
holders. Centralized dispatch is a brilliant way to bring together citizens looking for cabs and 
cab drivers looking for fares. We need a pension system to solve the issue of medallions 
being used as pensions. We need to cap fees on medallions. Drivers are mis-classified as 
independent contractors. The disciplinary process should include a way for drivers to bring 
grievances. 

Rua Graffis, United Taxicab Workers, stated everyone will be reviewing the rules. If you 
want to know how to fix the industry, talk to the drivers. We need equal representation. The 
City caps the meter rate and what drives income is the permit holder fee which needs to be 
capped. Copies of the contract between a driver and color scheme should be given to all 
parties. Ms. Graffis reviewed several other rules that needed to be re-examined. 

May McGuire stated that the Taxi Commission (TXC) has reviewed rules for years. The 
TXC Rules Subcommittee should review this item. There are three sections that are in 
conflict with current taxi accessibility guidelines. 

Martin Smith stated that UTW does not represent the industry. Under the proposed rales, a 
revoked medallion will be off the road for 90 days which will hurt cab drivers and the public. 
Maybe the cab should stay on the road and generate revenue. Drivers don't want a union. 
They consider themselves independent contractors. 

Dan Hinds, National Veteran's Cab, stated that the formulation of the draft rules was 
exclusive and that the proposed changes frame the nature of the debate about the industry. 
The most important concern is that of the riding public. If we provide reasonably priced, 
reliable service, then service demand will grow. That should be the focus rather than on the 
false dichotomy between management and drivers. 

Carl Macmurdo, Medallion Holders Association, stated that the make-up of the Taxi 
Advisory Group (TAG) as determined by the previous TAG should be respected. There is no 
real nexus between March 1 and the need to revise these codes. There are some good ideas 
but some of the other proposals are not. There is a critical safety problem. Mr. Macmurdo 
suggested that the topic be deferred for six months and that the proposals should be reviewed 
by a TAG. 



Peter Witt stated that the Police Commission changed all the rules and then the Taxi 
Commission changed the rules. Driver performance is a critical factor. Taxicab drivers need 
to be able to make a living and then they could afford health insurance. Central dispatch is a 
long-term solution. Putting medallions on the street would bring in revenue. Mr. Witt stated 
that he has done a customer survey every year for the past ten years. 

Barry Korengold stated that changes should be reviewed by people in the industry. People 
running the industry have never worked in the industry. There should be equal numbers on 
the Taxi Advisory Group. Mr. Korengold requested that the Board "give it six months" prior 
to adoption. 

12. Presentation and discussion of the First Quarter FY08 Service Standards Report. 
(Explanatory documents include a staff report.) (Debra Johnson) 

Travis Fox, Manager, System Performance, presented the report. Ken McDonald, Chief 
Operating Officer reviewed plans to improve on-time performance. 

Director Beach requested information regarding the number of vehicle breakdowns by mode. 

No public comment. 

13. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to execute the third amendment to the Red 
Light Photo Enforcement Agreement with ACS State and Local Solutions to extend the term 
to December 30, 2009 at no additional cost. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, 
resolution and contract amendment.) (Bond Yee) 

No public comment.

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

14. Naming the Muni Metro East Light Rail Facility as the "Willie L. Brown, Jr. Light Rail 
Facility". (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Debra Johnson) 

Item 14 was removed from the agenda at the request of staff.

Board met in closed session to discuss the Skoda termination agreement. The SFMTA Board 
of Directors voted unanimously to approve the agreement (Heinicke-absent). 

19. Motion to disclose or not disclose the information discussed in closed session. 

On motion to not disclose the information discussed: unanimously approved (Heinicke- 
absent). 

20. Endorsing the Shared Lane Design recommended by the City Traffic Engineer for the 
eastbound Market Street approach to Octavia Boulevard. (Explanatory documents include a 
staff report, resolution, designs and photos.) (Bond Yee) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Cheryl Brinkman, Livable City, expressed opposition to the plan. Changing the current plan 
will discourage cyclists. A shared-lane design is not safe for a cyclist. Other intersections 
along Market are scary. Ms. Brinkman asked the Board to not force her to share a lane with 
motorists and suggested that another solution be found. 

Michael Borden stated that he was involved in an accident at this location. The proposed 
changes are a huge step backwards in safety. The current design walls cyclists off from the 
cars unlike other intersections on Market. Mr. Borden urged the Board to reconsider doing 
away with the few improvements made over the past few years. 

Andy Thornley, SF Bike Coalition, stated that the idea is a bad one and a step backwards. 
The SFMTA is giving up before it has done all the work it could and should do. Mayor 
Newsom asked SFMTA to color the bicycle lane and the Planning department has consulted 
with neighborhoods to come up with more ideas. Mr. Thornley requested that the Board 
push away this suggestion and engage other city agencies to make the intersection safe 
comfortable and convenient. 

Zachary Stender stated that he had been struck by a car at Market and Octavia after 
improvements had been made. This "improvement" is not the right way to go. If the 
SFMTA take these steps, cyclists won't be or feel safe. Mr. Stender asked the SFMTA 
Board to slow down. There are other great options that would be better.

REGULAR CALENDAR 



7. Presentation and discussion of taxi merger including an overview of the industry, SFMTA 
Board powers and duties, legislation, post-merger organization, goals, and issues. (Explanatory 
documents include a power point presentation) (Christiane Hayashi) 

Christiane Hayashi, Director of Taxis and Accessible Services, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Frank Fahy stated that legislation was introduced to regulate limousines but it failed. With only 
one enforcement officer in Northern California, limousines are free to roam at will. Legislation 
should be attempted again. 

Veena Dubai, Asian Law Caucus, believes that for the benefit of consumers and workers, 
medallions should remain the property of the city and county. The MTA should honor the 
Mayor's earlier promise to protect Prop K. Ms. Dubai stated that the budget shouldn't be 
balanced on the back of workers. Ms. Dubai provided written suggestions for how to improve 
the taxicab industry. 

Martin Smith, Luxor Cab, stated that we need cab stands in every neighborhood in the city. Cab 
stands will improve business and will give drivers a place to sit without fear of being ticketed. 

A gentleman asked the Board to note the turnover in the taxi industry. Transferring medallions is 
a good idea but the city shouldn't consider medallions as assets since the city assumes no liability 
for them. He stated that he would like to see an exit strategy for drivers who drive a long time 
before getting a medallion. The best part of Prop. K was that a driver earned the medallion and 
couldn't own more than one. 

Mark Gruberg, UTW, stated that Prop. K should be maintained and that no transfer of medallions 
should be allowed. It's a mistake for the industry and will result in bidding wars. Voters have 
overwhelmingly supported Prop K against many attempts to repeal it and the SFMTA should 
respect the will of the voters. The Mayor has reversed his position on Prop. K. It will be 
impossible to drive substantial revenues from medallions without going down the unfair path of 
medallion auctions. Revenues should be used for taxi industry such as health benefits for 
drivers. Mr. Gruberg expressed hope that the state legislature would allow San Francisco to 
devise its own program for drug testing that would be respectful of the drivers' civil liberties. 

Irwin Lum, President, TWU Local 250- A, stated that operators are concerned about the need for 
taxicab services. How medallions are handled is a big issue as are illegal taxi rides by 
limousines. There needs to be stronger enforcement of limousines. Taxi drivers are independent 
operators who don't make a living wage or have benefits. 



Barry Korengold stated that talk of auctioning medallions to solve a budget deficit is unfair. 
Mi tinlli on owners aren't highly p aid and thev would start off with a huge debt if they had to buy 
a medallion. There is value in maintaining taxi drivers who have been driving for 20-30 years. 
I imousdnes are hogging trips to and from the airport. It has gotten out of hand. If this was 
handled, cab drivers would have money to buy health insurance 

Director Lee asked staff to present service indices for the taxi industry such as the length of time 
it takes to get a cab. 

8. Presentation and discussion of the SFMTA FY09 and FY10 budgets. (Explanatory 
documents include a power point presentation) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, Chief Financial Officer, presented the staff report. 

Director Beach requested information regarding scheduled vs. unscheduled overtime. 

In response to a question by Director Heinicke regarding the other options studied by the revenue 
panel, Exec. Director Ford stated that staff would prepare an analysis of each option including 
political opportunities and sensitivities, benefits and costs and possible revenues. 

Director Heinicke asked staff for information regarding fare box revenue on Family Day as 
compared to revenue from a normal Sunday schedule. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Wynship Hillier stated that the SFMTA has the only viable transit system in the western United 
States from a user's perspective. He urged staff to work with the Convention and Visitor's 
Bureau to alert conference attendees about illegal limousines. Mr. Hillier questioned the 
proposed change to the M-Ocean View line in the Ocean-Merced-Ingleside neighborhood. 
Changing service to the J-Church line diminishes the attractiveness of using that route to go 
downtown. Riders will choose to take BART instead which will increase costs. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that the budget problem can be solved. The value of a medallion in San 
Francisco is a good question. The last sale of a medallion on record in New York City was 
$700,000. Drivers don't currently have a stake in the industry. Mr. Mehmood expressed support 
for selling medallions. Issues with Prop K can be resolved. 

Razzu Engen stated that there are costs associated with improving the program. The program 
isn't reaching as many people as it should. As soon as the cost of the Fast Pass increases, the 
SFMTA will see an increase in demand so it might as well pay the costs now and implement a 
better program. Mr. Engen expressed the hope that the SFMTA can do this concurrent with the 
increase to the Fast Pass. He urged the SFMTA to make sure it is doing all it can to lobby 
Washington D.C. to take advantage of the stimulus package. 



9. Presentation and discussion of the SFMTA's Bike Plan. (Explanatory documents include a 
power point presentation) (Carter Rohan) 

Oliver Gajda, Manager, Bicycle Program, presented the report. 

Wade Crowfoot, Mayor's Office, stated that implementation of the Bike Plan is one of Mayor 
Newsom's priorities. There is no more important infrastructure improvement than improving the 
bike network and it is essential to making an impact on the environment, improving San 
Franciscan's quality of life and reducing San Francisco's carbon footprint. Mr. Crowfoot 
expressed appreciation for continuing to push bike projects forward in a difficult economic time. 
There will be difficult choices ahead but the SFMTA needs to push the envelope to expand the 
bike network. Education and enforcement have been increased to address concerns about adult 
cyclists riding on the sidewalk. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Leah Shahum, SF Bicycle Coalition, expressed appreciation to staff for doing a great job in a 
difficult time. The gathering of data is essential to knowing how to prioritize bike projects. It's 
an exciting time in San Francisco with more adults riding bicycles in the city. Despite the 
standstill due to the bike injunction there has been a huge increase in cyclists. Other cities are 
seeing dramatic changes as well. 

10. Update on the Transit Effectiveness Project. (Explanatory documents include a power point 
presentation) (Ken McDonald) 

Julie Kirschbaum, Manager, Transit Effectiveness Project, presented the staff report.' 

In response to Director Oka's concern regarding stop spacing, Ms. Kirschbaum stated that they 
will bring a recommendation to the Board regarding a city- wide policy regarding stop 
consolidation. 

No public comment. 

11. Presentation and discussion of various parking initiatives. (Explanatory documents include a 
power point presentation) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, Chief Financial Officer, presented the staff report. 

Chairman McCray requested a report regarding the SFpark pilot projects including technologies 
being tested and a timeline for decisions. 

No public comment.

Chairman Nolan stated that he would be stepping down as Chairman of the Policy and Governance 
Committee. Director Beach has agreed to serve as Chairman of the committee. Director Black will

8. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, Chairman, CAC presented the CAC recommendations. 

9. Public Comment 



David Turner introduced Valerie Taybron who talked about her return to work status. She requested that 
she be allowed to return to her permanent position at the Flynn Division. 

Douglas Johnson expressed concern regarding the 37-Corbett. For the past four years the bus has gone off 
route at Roosevelt Way and Buena Vista Terrace and they miss four stops. This happens between 10 p.m. 
and 1 a.m. and on the weekend. 

Mark Gruberg stated that UTW is concerned about the clamor to overturn taxi medallions in favor of a 
system whereby medallions would be bought and sold. This is being done because of money. Proponents 
are people who have received a medallion by paying a small fee, and now want to sell for it for thousands 
of dollars. This undeserved windfall will come out of the pockets of others, and ultimately, the public. 
Proponents will talk about the need for an exit strategy. There are better ways to raise revenue such as 
stepped up enforcement against illegal operators. Don't view the taxi industry as a cash cow. 

Emil Lawrence stated that the SFMTA Board doesn't deserve an award. No board member has the 
capability beyond a rubber stamp of Mr. Ford's proposals. The Board signs off on everything that comes 
their way. Mr. Lawrence stated that he was given a ticket for picking up a handicapped person and he 
provided a copy of letter he sent. Mr. Lawrence stated that Mr. Ford had said that he would apply Prop. K 
but now it's being thrown into the garbage as of March 1. 

Joe Walseth asked Muni to give as much attention to the safety of its' riders as it does to collecting fares. 
His partner was assaulted and he is outraged that his partner had to endure abuse. He has also observed 
illegal and uncivil behavior. There needs to be a law enforcement presence on lines where incidents occur. 

Silvia Johnson stated people aren't given a chance and we need to change. 

Terri Factora, Guadalupe School PTA President, stated that they had received word that they would receive 
a crossing guard. They have also heard that a stop sign is being recommended. Ms. Factora requested that 
the installation of the stop sign be expedited. 

Khagendra stated that Yellow Cab is the best company in town. Mr. Tariq Mehmood is helpful and doesn't 
discriminate. He is knowledgeable about the industry and should be given the chance to represent drivers 
on a Taxi Advisory Committee. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that there are issues within any organization with 1500-2000 workers. You have to 
have a group of people who can talk to management up front. That's the right way to solve issues rather 
than take to the streets. There's another group that says it represents drivers but he has never seen more 
than 5-8 people at their meetings. This group has lost the respect of drivers. 

Blake Derby stated that Muni needs to collect more fares. People are getting on board through the back 
door. Taxi drivers are being denied their ADA rights. People are waiting in droves to drive his shift but his 
kids want him to be with them. Cab drivers are not operators, but are glorified drivers. The sale of 
medallions could be do-able but you would need to provide no-interest loans for people who have been 
driving for a long time. Revenues shouldn't go to Muni but should be used to benefit taxi drivers. 



Martin Smith, Luxor Cab, stated that they look forward to Mr. Ford's leadership. Ms. Hayashi has already 
reached out to companies. 

Asad, Yellow Cab Driver, stated that they have the best cab driver alliance. They can talk to management 
at any time. They know their issues and don't need to be represented by anyone else. He requested 
consideration of Mr. Mehmoud as the driver representative. 

Tom Radulovich thinks that the CAC revenue suggestions are good. The City Charter charges the SFMTA 
Board to diligently seek new revenue sources and expressed hope that the Board will follow up on all of 
their suggestions. Some of the revenue proposals have different environmental impacts and could have a 
negative effect on transit and the city. As budget options are brought forward, the Board should ask if they 
take us in the right direction or the wrong direction and if they can be quantified in terms of environmental 
impact. People are looking for the least expensive transportation option. This is a time for progressive and 
sound revenue ideas. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL TRANSPORTATION 
AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR ACTION AS STATED BY THE 
SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. 
EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL CALENDAR ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 
1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th FLOOR.

public so requests, in which event the matter shall be removed from the Consent Calendar and considered

Eastern Neighborhoods Transportation Implementation Planning Study and Environmental Review, to

RFP.) (Carter Rohan) 

Item 10.5 was severed by a member of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Tom Radulovich wondered whether the project conforms with city policy. The Board of Supervisors 
approved a resolution saying that before the Central Freeway is retrofitted, a study must be done. They also 
said that the Central Freeway should be renovated South of Market. Mr. Radulovich stated that he brought 
this policy to the attention of staff but was told that it's not their place to look into it. It's silly to study 
transportation patterns with an assumption that the Central Freeway will remain exactly as it is. Staff needs to 
re-examine what the Charter says about managing streets and then manage city streets in accordance with 
existing city policy. 



Norman Rolfe stated that staff at the Transportation Authority is difficult to work with. Transportation 
planning should be consolidated within the SFMTA. It's a lot to contend with but the SFMTA needs to start 
thinking that way. 

Chairman Nolan stated that the item could be approved with additional direction to staff to deal with the 
issue raised by Mr. Radulovich regarding the Central Freeway. 

RESOLUTION 09-022 

On motion to approve Item 10.5: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

ABSENT - Heinicke 

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar (Item 10.5 severed): 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

ABSENT - Heinicke 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

1 1 . Adopting Article 1 100 of Division II of the Transportation Code which regulates motor vehicles for hire 
including all Taxicab Commission regulations, policies and procedures; and delegating the power and 
obligation to conduct hearings to the SFMTA Hearing Section. (Explanatory documents include a staff 
report, resolution and regulations.) (Christiane Hayashi) 

Christiane Hayashi, Director, Taxicab and Accessible Services, presented the staff report. Ms. Hayashi 
offered an amendment to the regulations regarding the summary suspension of a permit. Ms. Hayashi read 
the proposed amendment into the record. 

The amendment was accepted by the SFMTA Board without objection. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Mark Gruberg expressed appreciation that Ms. Hayashi had accepted the recommendation of the Citizens 
Advisory Council. Mr. Gruberg stated that he understands the need to have these rules in place for a smooth 
transition and expressed hope that staff is open to other changes. Mr. Gruberg stated that a Public 
Convenience and Necessity (PCN) hearing should be able to be appealed to the Board of Appeals. Appealing 
a decision to the court would be costly and cumbersome because the standard of proof is much higher. 



Emil Lawrence stated that he objects to the Mayor's office sending another woman lawyer to serve as the 
Taxi Commission Director. Mr. Lawrence reviewed sections of the rules and regulations that were 
objectionable. The rules lack any discussion about back pay. Taxicabs should have the right to park on 
street. 

Dave Barlow, UTW, stated that he supports the recommendation of the CAC regarding the rules and 
regulations. 

Chairman Nolan stated that referencing the gender of an employee is contrary to city policy. 

Barry Taranto stated that the rules and regulations required more participation. Mr. Taranto expressed 
agreement with Mr. Gruberg regarding the role of politics in the decision-making process and that the 
decision about the number of medallions to put on the street should be appealable to the Board of Appeals. 
The SFMTA Board should also approve applicants for medallions as well as permits. Mr. Taranto stated that 
the proposed changes should be sent to the list maintained by the Taxi Commission. The person who heads 
the SFMTA's Hearing Division did a poor job on two cases. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that they objected to the first draft but thinks that these new rules and regulations 
should be accepted. Ms. Hayashi will set up a group to resolve other issues in the future. Ms. Hayashi is 
honestly trying to solve issues. 

Blake Derby stated that Ms. Hayashi is more willing to talk than others and that the industry can work with 
her. He expressed agreement with regards to keeping the Board of Appeals in the loop as a fail safe measure. 
They're an objective party. Mr. Derby expressed concern about some of the language but he will work it out 
with staff. 

Silvia Johnson stated that she has been part of an organization. People see the signs and things can be 
changed through a peaceful revolution. This is for our children. She stated that she had been working on this 
and all she had seen was a shut out. 

RESOLUTION 09-023 

On motion to approve as amended: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

ABSENT - Heinicke 

Chairman Nolan read the city policy against harassment and stated that he would like to maintain grace and 
respect during the meetings. He stated that he intends to follow the policy closely and while the Board 
encourages strong opinions, they also want to encourage respect. 



1 2. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to advertise a Request for Proposals for the Operation and 
Management of Parking Facilities and approving Parking Facility Operation and Management Regulations. 
(Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution, RFP and regulations.) (Amit Kothari) 

Item 1 2 was removed from the agenda. 

13. Approving the amendment to Section 902 of the Transportation Code, Division II, to add fees for motor 
coach substitution to be incrementally increased over a five-year period. (Explanatory documents include a 
staff report, resolution and amendment.) (Sonali Bose) 

Deputy City Attorney Friedlander noted that the item needed to be amended to specify that the rate is per 
"vehicle hour". 

The amendment was accepted by the SFMTA Board without objection. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Robert Leon, Haight-Ashbury Street Fair, expressed appreciation for the opportunity for the productive and 
constructive dialogue about how to reach a mutual conclusion. The proposal is one that both parties 
collaborated on and support and it's a great example of how groups can work creatively to find solutions. 

Ted Fang, Asian Heritage Street Fair, stated that he would like to present an award for the way in which the 
agency worked with the community. He stated that they agreed to substantial increases to the fees because it 
helps the SFMTA get closer to cost recovery. This is an excellent example of a city agency working with the 
community. Staff was honest about the difficulties and was sensitive to the economic and cultural needs of 
the community. 

George Ridgely, Castro Street Fair, expressed appreciation to staff for listening to their concerns and 
allowing for a solution that benefits everyone. This plan addresses financial concerns and maintains the 
viability of their events. It was a great working relationship that constructively solved a problem. 

RESOLUTION 09-024 

On motion to approve as amended: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

ABSENT - Heinicke 

14. Discussion and vote pursuant to Administrative Code Section 67.10(d) as to whether to conduct a closed

1 



Exec. Director/CEO Ford discussed various safety enhancements undertaken at the SFMTA and 
the plan for the Economic Stimulus projects. Because of the tight timeline, staff will not bring 
the release of Request for Proposals or Bid Calls for these contracts to the SFMTA Board for 
authorization. Instead the Board will receive a notice of intent to release. Chairman Nolan stated 
that the Board concurred with the plan. 

8. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Chairman Nolan read the Mayor's policy on discrimination and stated that the Board was happy 
to hear from all members of the public but requests an atmosphere of respect. 

Emil Lawrence stated that at the last meeting there was inadequate protocol. He was cut off 
when he asked for extra time to discuss the draft taxi regulations. He has asked the Ethics 
Commission and Sunshine Ordinance Task Force for their input. People shouldn't be cut off 
when they are providing input on regulations that impact people's lives. Issues were left out of 
the draft. 

Ben Valis stated that the way Prop. K is currently structured getting a medallion is a light at the 
end of the tunnel for taxi drivers. The current system encourages life-long employment and is a 
great model but there is some graft and corruption. The sale of medallions is a quick fix for 
budgetary reasons but the SFMTA needs to look at the medallion system as a good governance 
issue. Making medallions transferable won't improve service and will push good people out of 
the industry. The SFMTA needs to look at centralized dispatch. 

Barry Taranto stated that fare inspectors are important. People often board through the rear door 
of buses but inspectors are only on the Metro lines. Mr. Taranto spoke about a ticket that he 
received for failure to show a transfer and asked the Board to look into how inspectors are 
trained, hired and deployed and how well they're doing. Fare inspectors are boisterous and 
abusive. 

Michael Kupieski suggested that changes to the medallion process be implemented when the 
current list has been finished. Mr. Kupieski stated that he has been on the list for 10 years. The 
SFMTA should give those who are already on the list the chance to. get what they signed up for.

TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR

Communications; Frank Lau, Unit Engineer, Electrical Engineering; Steve Lee; Manager, Special 
Projects; Rolando Mendoza, Supervisor, Automotive Service Worker, Flynn Division; and Aklilu 
Teffera, Transit Operator, Presidio Division. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford discussed an incident at the Woods Division on February 18; introduced 
James Dougherty, Chief Safety Officer/Director of Transportation Safety and announced that the 
Transit Effectiveness Project team was awarded a Public Management Excellence Award by the 
Municipal Fiscal Advisory Committee. 

Jack Fleck, City Traffic Engineer reviewed a proposal to turn Hayes Street into a two-way street 
between Van Ness and Gough. 

Christiane Hayashi, Director of Taxi & Accessible Services reported on the status of the SFMTA-Taxi 
Commission merger. 

Debra Johnson, Chief of Staff/Director of Administration presented an update on the economic 
stimulus projects. 

Chairman Nolan noted that the SFMTA Board was willing to streamline the process for ARRA 
contracts and asked staff to let the Board know if there were other ways in which the Board could 
assist staff in moving these contracts forward quickly. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto suggested that the SFMTA honor people in the taxi industry, police department or 
employees at the airport such as the officer at the airport who helps keep the business safe. Mr. 
Taranto expressed concern about how information about the town hall meetings is being disseminated. 
Taxi companies may not get the info out to the drivers. The SFMTA should pay someone to go to the 
airport to distribute info there. He is also concerned about how medallions and A-cards are being 
approved. Approval of those items should appear on the Board agenda. 

Irwin Lum, President, TWU-Local 250-A apologized for the disruption at the Woods Division and 
stated that TWU Local 250-A doesn't condone what happened. 

Emil Lawrence objects to the use of the word "merger" when talking about the Taxi Commission. He 
stated it's a hijacking. There should be open hearings about what's going on in the industry regarding 
permits, investigations, and when taxi drivers will get $27 per hour. 

Mark Gruberg, UTW, stated that not every proposal will be about the medallions. UTW is working on 
several proposals to help taxi drivers. Mr. Gruberg stated that while two-way streets are generally 
more pedestrian friendly, Hayes Street is different. Having a constant line of traffic waiting to turn 
left will not improve the streets' environment. 

Carl Macmurdo stated that the taxicab industry is private. He stated that he was delighted to have 
board members who have professional transit experience. 



Naeem Malik stated that the merger is a good step toward making a better life for taxi drivers. Drivers 
need better wages, health care and benefits. Regarding the proposal to sell medallions Mr. Malik 
wondered about the drivers who have been driving cabs for many years and who have owned 
medallions for many years. The city needs more medallions. 

Martin Smith, Luxor Cab, stated that they are looking forward to the merger and working with the 
SFMTA. People went crazy when the proposal to sell medallions was announced. If we work 
together, we can do many good things. 

8. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Chairman Tom Nolan reviewed the Mayor's Policy on Discrimination. 

Barry Taranto suggested that Sgt Reynolds provide a staff report at SFMTA Board meetings. It's 
important to know what the police department is doing with regards to enforcement and illegal 
activities. The 24-Divisadero line has bunched buses. This problem needs to be solved. The city 
needs more buses in the evening. Other commissions provide board binders at their meetings and one 
should be available at this meeting. 

Emil Lawrence stated that the SFMTA seems to be immune from what's going on. Unemployment 
has reached 10%. The Mayor has told other city departments to cut their overhead but the SFMTA 
hasn't done anything. Income is down forty percent for London taxi drivers. The SFMTA Board 
should start thinking about driver wages. SFMTA salaries are in the stratosphere. Overhead should be 
cut by 25% by knocking down salaries. 

Cosimo Spera, Zipidy, stated that his company has been participating in the "pay by cell" pilot project. 
This program has been a great success. Expanding the program city-wide will result in additional 
revenue without additional cost to the city. 

Chris Apicella discussed the lighting at the Presidio Yard. As a neighbor, the lights are glaring. Mr. 
Apicella asked staff to alleviate this problem for their neighbors. He also discussed the high-pitched 
beeping noise buses make when turning right. The sound is loud and can be heard a block away. He 
requested that the SFMTA consider the quality of life of their neighbors without sacrificing public 
safety. 

Naeem Malik stated that the cab system is broken but could be fixed if medallion holders were 
required to pay $ 1 500 to the city. The city could use the money to provide benefits, workers 
compensation and centralized dispatch to cab drivers. He urged the Board to reduce the gate fee to 
$75 per shift because taxi drivers are hurting financially. No one should be exempt from the driving 
requirements. 



THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL

Vice Chairman McCray commended staff for their hard work and requested that the item be continued 
to allow more time for staff to reach out to the community. 

Amit Kothari, Director, Off-Street Parking, presented the staff report. 

Barbara Chance, Chance Management, discussed the report on Parking Authority business practices 
that her firm had provided to the Board last year. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Stan Bochniak, Five Star Parking, expressed support for the RFP and commended staff for their 
proactive approach towards getting input from potential bidders in advance. It is a more efficient and 
effective way to manage facilities and will be best for San Francisco. 

Kevin Wong, ABC Parking, stated that they disagree with the process. Kevin Haggerty, former 
director of the Parking Authority Commission, designed the current process to develop and encourage 
small business. His direction was to welcome and help small business owners. The format for 
awarding bids that was followed back then was good and should be used. There were many 
opportunities to participate. Mr. Wong stated that he objects to the new process. 

John Newman, Central Parking, expressed support for the RFP and urged the Board to adopt it. He 
commended staff on the thoroughness of their outreach efforts. The City and County of San Francisco 
needs to improve the efficiency, quality and performance of city garages. He welcomes an open, 
competitive and responsible bid process. 



Marc Gleason, Teamsters Local 665, stated that the Chance Report was a breath of fresh air. Local 665 
fully supports the long overdue RFP. Garages are a public asset and his diverse membership is prepared 
to protect that asset. During recent contract negotiations, Local 665 committed to total adherence to 
revenue controls. This RFP will be beneficial to his membership, new operators and to the City. 
Transparency should be the rule of the day. 

At the request of Vice Chairman McCray, Chairman Nolan continued item 13 to the April 7, 2009 
meeting. 

Item 1 3 was continued to the April 7, 2009 meeting.

Virginia Harmon, Senior Manager, Equality Opportunity, reported on the Vendor Outreach 
meeting. 

8. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Bob Planthold discussed two safety issues which indicate poor employee training. Recently yellow 
tape had been put across an emergency exit which is a violation of the Fire Code. On March 16, 
2009, there was a delay between the Van Ness and Church Street stations. The operator called 
Central Control but it was seven minutes before anybody responded. The operators need to have the 
authority to tell passengers what's happening. 

David Pilpel suggested that the SFMTA look at contracts, such as the subway capacity study, because 
they may not be needed. The Chairman and Exec. Director/CEO should recognize retiring operators for 
their service. The SFMTA should promote keeping people for longer rather than laying people off. 

James Musalski stated that the Board has decided to make up the deficit by hoisting it on to 
customers. Employee salaries are outrageous. Mr. Musalski stated that he would be ashamed if he 
were taking the money Mr. Ford was taking and doing the job he's doing. Cuts should start at the top 
instead of making cuts at the customer level. Board members run Muni, but don't use it. Mr. 
Musalski added that he is tired of fat salaries when people need help. 

Norm Rolfe stated that the train control system had been discussed at CAC meetings. Philadelphia 
inaugurated a comparable system and everything has gone wrong with it. The train control system 
must be modified. The SFMTA should go back to the old system where they ran the trains manually. 
It is frustrating to wait because Muni can't double berth trains. 

Emil Lawrence stated that there should be coordination on the start time of the Board meeting 
because the website lists 1 :00 pm and the front door lists 2:00 pm. The SFMTA passed him over on 
four occasions for jobs. Several weeks ago, Mr. Lawrence commented that he was cut off when he 
asked for extra minutes during public comment and wants his addendum entered in the public record. 



Ted Solomon stated that other large cities are able to collect fares. A high percent of riders don't pay 
fares and operators don't pay attention. The SFMTA is losing money. In New York City if you jump 
the turnstiles, you get a $100 ticket. Muni's underground is better than its bus system. 

Vernon Smith stated that he is tired of dealing with Muni Metro because they're not announcing 
transfer points. Blind people deserve that right. The rule is that transfer points are called every time. 
Operators need to be held accountable. 



THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR

ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL

Item 10.3 was severed from the Consent Calendar at the request of Chairman Nolan. The

REGULAR CALENDAR 

1 1 . Presentation and discussion of the FY2010 budget. (Explanatory documents include a slide 
presentation.) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, Chief Financial Officer, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold stated that the loss of staff and service affect the public. Staff should look at ways 
to get new money. In the early 90's, a surcharge was added to express lines and ridership 
plummeted. Mr. Planthold questioned what raising the discounted fast pass would that do to the 
experimental senior disabled contract. Fare increases may have to be adjusted. Staff should 
look at increasing the single fare for seniors because there is a financial disincentive for seniors 
to buy a senior fast pass. 



Norm Rolfe urged an increase in garage fees. The rates in privately-owned garages are higher 
than in city-owned garages. Shopper and the early bird rates should be eliminated. Staff should 
look into transit impact development fees on commercial properties. 

David Pilpel suggested that cost recovery fees for color curb painting and residential parking 
permits should be reviewed annually and set to fully cover administrative costs. Positions 
shouldn't be frozen but the SFMTA should issue layoff notices. Passenger fares should be 
increased to $1 .75. We need more communication with passengers. Staff should consider 
declaring a fiscal emergency because it would short circuit CEQA review. 

Irwin Lum, President, TWU-Local 250-A, stated that the union has been trying to improve 
schedules which has resulted in increased on-time performance. As fares increase, service 
should not decline. We should consider eliminating transfers. We have recommended voluntary 
furloughs as long as runs aren't back-filled using overtime. Labor leaders were in Sacramento to 
request giving cities the ability to raise vehicle registration fees. Labor leaders have tried to meet 
with D.C. legislators to talk about using economic stimulus money for operating expenses. 

Emil Lawrence stated that the Mayor issued a directive to reduce overhead by 25%. There is no 
reduction in salaries in this budget. Salaries are out of line. 20% of the taxi business is due to 
Muni's low on-time performance. Police overtime does not belong in the budget. Cable Car fare 
fraud is still happening. Mr. Lawrence stated that he was unaware that there was a moratorium 
on medallions. The SFMTA has a problem raising parking tickets. 

Mark Gruberg, UTW, stated that the vast majority of drivers without medallions would be 
opposed to auctioning medallions. Mr. Gruberg read a letter by Mayor Newsom and then- 
Supervisor Peskin. Many of us were concerned about the ability of Prop. A to do away with Prop 
K. We were not supportive of the merger unless guarantees were made to protect Prop. K. The 
SFMTA Exec. Director committed to preserving Prop. K. The issue of revenues can be 
disentangled from the issue of auctioning medallions. UTW has put forward a proposal for 
raising substantial revenues without auctioning medallions. Those revenues should go for taxi 
purposes. 

12. Discussion and vote pursuant to Administrative Code Section 67.10(d) as to whether to 
conduct a closed session and invoke the attorney-client privilege. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel expressed hope that the new safety director is working to minimize costs and manage 
risk better because claims and litigation are a significant budget item. 

On motion to invoke the attorney-client privilege: unanimously approved.

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Paratransit debit card status 
-Update on Federal Stimulus Projects efforts 
-Ongoing Activities 



Exec. Director/CEO Ford presented Special Recognition awards to Jessica Manzi, Associate Engineer, 
Transportation Planning & Development; Lauren Green, Manager, DPT Signal Division; Augustus 
Doss, Transit Operator; Flynn Division; Debra Lumpkin; Transit Operator; Green Division. 

Mr. Ford discussed federal New Starts funding for the Central Subway Project. 

Carter Rohan, Senior Director, Transportation Planning & Development provided a report on the 
Paratransit Debit Card project. 

Debra Johnson, Chief of Staff Director of Administration reported on the SFMTA's efforts with regard 
to federal economic stimulus projects. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto stated that we need to stop the debit card fraud and make sure that the photo matches the 
person who is using the card. He stated that accessing board documents on-line isn't easy and that there 
is poor dissemination of information. Documents should be brought to the meeting and the receptionists 
don't want people to see the documents. He asked that the paratransit program be transparent and open. 

Emile Lawrence stated that his request that his addendum be added to the public record had not been 
done and that he will send a letter to the Board of Supervisors and Sunshine Ordinance Task Force if it 
isn't. Nothing will solve the budget problem except by reducing salaries. Financial problems stem 
from bloated management salaries. Mr. Lawrence provided a letter regarding the hiring of the Director 
of Taxis and Accessible Services and requested that the letter be included as part of the meeting minutes. 

8. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, Chairman, CAC presented the report. 

9. Public Comment 

James Bryant, SEIU, stated that Prop. A. generated at least S26 million in revenue but not one dollar was 
spent on behalf of transit services, employees or facilities. The list of money that has been snatched 
away is robbery. Mr. Bryant expressed hope that it can be rectified immediately. 

Hansu Kim stated that he has been asked to put together a taxi coalition regarding medallion reform. He 
commended the SFMTA for their professionalism with regards to the paratransit debit card. Staff has 
been outstanding in addressing the concerns of the taxi industry but it wouldn't have happened without 
Bruce Oka. Mr. Kim expressed hope that future proposals for taxi reform will consider input from the 
industry and will address long-standing issues. 

Neil Simonsen stated that the City refuses to respond to calls or cite vehicles that are double-parked in 
front of religious establishments. These cars block legally parked vehicles, prevent the movement of 
emergency vehicles and constitutes an endorsement of religion. Mr. Simonsen asked to see the statute, 
that exempts people who park for religious purposes. 



Barry Taranto stated that access to public documents is tough. He suggested that fare inspectors be put 
on runs with the most illegal activities. SFMTA proposals will turn taxi drivers into slaves. 
Enforcement of white zones could bring in millions in revenue. PCO #1 14 does a good job. Many 
PCO's should be saluted because they treat cab drivers with respect. 

Carl Macmurdo, Taxi Medallion Holder Association, suggested that Hansu Kim and other technical 
experts study possible structures for financial regulation and write a new law for the collective benefit of 
cab drivers and the SFMTA. 

Emile Lawrence stated that the problem with taxi medallions won't be resolved by the SFMTA and any | 
attempt to overthrow Prop. K will fill meetings with drivers. The SFMTA should put a moratorium on 
issuing tickets to taxi drivers. The high cost of tickets is outrageous. 

Martin Smith stated that the cab industry was in disarray. Ms. Hayashi is doing a good job reaching out 
to drivers. He expressed hope that the SFMTA is ready to work with the industry and that drivers don't 
have to work under the threat that their medallions will be taken away. 

Tariq Mehmood requested the chance for taxi drivers to find a way to raise money that will be good for 
both the City and the industry. Anything done above drivers' heads will hurt and will give the SFMTA 
a bad name. 

Mike Spain stated that the taxi industry demands more study. The New York City Taxicab and 
Limousine website deals with medallion sales. It's an efficient system with an extensive network of 
lenders for drivers who need to borrow money to get a medallion. 

Barry Korengold talked about the proposals to change Prop. A. Hundreds of cab drivers are on the 
waiting list to get a medallion. Changing the system will be disruptive to the industry. Medallions will 
be owned by lenders. It is unfair to expect taxi drivers to solve the budget problem. 

Chris Apicella stated that the buses are beeping which keep people awake at night. This problem has 
gotten worse in the last month. He urged the SFMTA to find a way to address both safety and quality of 1 
life issues. 

David Pilpel stated that he finds it offensive that the SFMTA would schedule a public meeting to discuss 
the Hayes Street two-way proposal on an important holiday and suggested that the meeting be either 
rescheduled or that an additional meeting be held. He stated that the proposed budget solutions will 
affect people who did nothing wrong and should be avoided. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR ACTION 
AS STATED BY THE SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY ATTORNEY WHERE 
APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL CALENDAR ITEMS ARE 
AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th FLOOR.

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Charmaine Yu expressed support for extending the permit area. Many residents and local businesses 
support this and it will make 99.9% of the people happy. Ms. Yu requested that the Board approve 
the item. 

Michael Woods expressed support for the initiative. It is difficult for people to visit local businesses 
or for residents to leave their homes because of the parking problems in the area. Residents are 
prisoners in their own homes. Mr. Woods urged the Board to pass the item and called it a positive 
move for the neighborhood. 

Brenda Beebe expressed support for the extension of the "X" parking permit. It's needed for the 
neighborhood. 

Susan Fitch expressed support for the permit parking area. People leave their car all day which 
makes parking very tough for residents who don't have a garage. She urged approval of the item.

resolve the budget deficit as equitably as possible; to think about what could put on the ballot. He 
suggested that staff continue to look at areas where regional cooperation could produce economies of 
scale. 

12. Public hearing to consider a declaration of fiscal emergency caused by the failure of agency 
revenues to adequately fund SFMTA operations, programs and facilities for Fiscal Year 2010 pursuant 
to the California Public Resources Code section 21080.32 and California Environmental Quality Act 
Implementing Guidelines. (Explanatory documents include a staff report.) (Sonali Bose) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Irwin Lum, T WU-Local 250- A stated that the SFMTA faced a similar declaration in 2005 which 
resulted in the deterioration in service, safety and on-time performance. The downturn in the economy 
affects mass transit and in particular, seniors and youth who depend on public transit as their sole source 
of transportation. Voters saw the Prop. A money wiped out by work orders to other city departments. 
We need accountability from City Hall to ensure the true use of money. Mr. Lum suggested that staff 
find other ways to balance the budget rather than service cuts. 

Rafael Cabrera, TWU-Local 250-A stated that it took almost three years to recover from the chaos that 
resulted from the 2005 declaration. It's not fair to do what we did in 2005 again. Prop. E promised safe, 
clean buses to all communities. Cutting service will mean that certain neighborhoods will be without 
transit service. He asked the Board not to declare a fiscal emergency. 

David Pilpel stated that he would provide written comments by the end of the week. He expressed 
concern about whether the fiscal ship had been righted or if adequate notice had been provided. He 
suggested that the Budget Analyst for the Board of Supervisors analyze the situation. He noted the 
exemptions for environmental review were limited to service reductions or increases. The exemption 
doesn't include service to new areas. 

13. Approving a methodology for indexing charges by using a formula incorporating labor charges and 
the Bay Area Consumer Price Index to be applied to transit fares, parking citation fines, parking garage 
rates and other relevant charges beginning Fiscal Year 201 1. (Explanatory documents include a staff 
report, resolution and plan.) (Sonali Bose) 



Item 13 was continued. 

14. Adopting criteria establishing the type of information which would be sufficient to warrant an 
investigation into the illegal operation of a taxi business or vehicle, and establishing a fine in the amount 
of $5,000 for each violation. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and Government 
Code.) (Christiane Hayashi) 

Item 1 4 was continued. 

15. Adopting various amendments to Article 1 100, Division II of the San Francisco Transportation Code 
regarding Motor Vehicles for Hire. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and 
proposed amendments.) (Christiane Hayashi) 

Item 1 5 was continued. 

16. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to advertise a Request for Proposals for the Operation and 
Management of Parking Facilities. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and RFP.) 
(Amit Kothari) 

Mr. Ford stated that staff would like to amend the resolution to stipulate that any existing contract would 
complete its' current term and after the term expires, the contract would revert to the new contractor. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Kevin Wong stated that each contract is unique and should be handled differently. He urged the 
SFMTA to not reverse the work done over the past 15 years with regard to encouraging small business. 
He requested that the requirements for finance and experience be lowered. It is unfair to award contracts 
to just two or three garage operators. 

Deputy City Attorney stated that the resolution needed to be amended to require that managers selected 
through the RFP process would not assume management of a facility until such time as the existing 
management agreement expired. 

Director Heinicke recused himself from voting on the amendment and on the resolution. 

On motion to approve the amendment: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

ABSENT - McCray 

RECUSED - Heinicke

1 7. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to advertise a Request for Proposals for Contract No. CS- 
155, Professional Architectural and Engineering Service for the Final Design and Construction Phases of 
Central Subway, Third Street Light Rail Project Phase 2, including feasibility and engineering services 
for a new central control facility, to evaluate proposals and negotiate a contract with the selected 
Consultant. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and RFP.) (Carter Rohan) 

Carter Rohan, Senior Director, Transportation Planning & Development discussed the SFMTA's efforts 
to maximize opportunities for small, local businesses. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that the Central Subway project is bad and that he doesn't like it. He requested the 
latest projections for the operating cost increment over current operations. The project will likely have 
higher operating costs. Mr. Pilpel also asked for information about the new Central Control facility. 

RESOLUTION 09-055 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

ABSENT - McCray 

18. Discussion and vote pursuant to Administrative Code Section 67.10(d) as to whether to conduct a 
closed session and invoke the attorney-client privilege.

medallions and Prop. K. 

Barry Taranto stated that morning meetings are difficult for drivers. He expressed concern 
about proposed rules and regulations and stated that it's proper to have the same level of 
participation in rule changes as with the budget. Color scheme changes should be approved by 
the Board. 

Tariq Mehmood stated cab companies from other cities used to pick up visitors in San 
Francisco but with changes to dispatch, service to outlying neighborhoods has improved. 
Serious crimes are committed against taxi drivers every month. 

Hansu Kim discussed sensitivities in the taxicab industry and commended staff for their 
respect. He stated that the SFMTA is needlessly alienating a large number of stakeholders 
because of the lack of transparency. The SFMTA has a rare opportunity to raise revenue and 
fix long standing industry issues. 

Barry Korengold, San Francisco Cab Drivers Association, discussed a new organization that 
was formed to represent cab drivers. It will address long-standing issues in cooperation with 
other organizations. 

David Pilpel commended the Board for the decorum and respect shown to the public at 
meetings. Mr. Pilpel asked for information regarding overtime for the FY09 and FY 10 and

Eric Carlson and Joan Downey discussed Rescue Muni's recommendations. 

Lea Schick stated that people are concerned about service cutbacks. 

Hansu Kim discussed how to best move forward with the taxi industry. 

Rohan Clarke suggested increased advertising as a means to increase revenue. He also

regarding the 108-Treasure Island line and support for relocating bus stops. 



Nelum Zia expressed opposition to the proposal regarding paratransit fares. 

Diane Maluia expressed appreciation for extending service on the 35-Eureka to 10 p.m. 

Dan Hines asked that the board consider basic structural needs such as the opportunity for 
people to enter and exit the taxi industry. 

Razzu Engen, Transit Justice Project, expressed opposition to the taxi medallion proposal, 
service cuts, fare increases and support for fixing the Lifeline Pass. 

Francisco Da Costa asked the SFMTA to pay attention to the Americans with Disabilities Act 
and to be mindful of the needs of elders.

support for reducing salaries by 25%.

stop consolidation. 

Reggie McCray, TWU Local 200, expressed opposition to installing additional cameras on 

7

Fran Taylor expressed concern about the proposal to extend riders wait time for a bus. 

Director Black requested information in writing regarding management positions, the fiscal

12. Declaring a fiscal emergency caused by the failure of agency revenues to adequately fund 
agency programs, facilities and operations pursuant to California Public Resources Code 
section 21080.32 and California Environmental Quality Act implanting guidelines. 
(Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Sonali Bose) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that he was not clear whether the SFMTA is eligible. All that this does is allow 
the SFMTA to avoid environmental review. The working capital calculations don't segregate 
transfer revenues from non-transfer revenues and there is no disclosure of the number of impacted 
riders by line or community. He asked the Board to defer action and recommended that the 
resolution be amended to delete the last two resolved clauses. 

Irwin Lum, TWU-250-A, stated that the impact of cuts will be on various communities and so an 
EIR would be needed. Changing travel patterns will impact seniors, disabled and the environment. 
People are outraged over work orders. Mr. Lum urged the Board to preserve service. 

Emile Lawrence stated that the Board doesn't recognize the economic impact of a long term 
downward trend. Staff salaries should be cut by 25% immediately. Don't raise fares or cut service. 

Mark Gruberg stated that he is concerned about how this would apply to taxis. If there are more 
taxicabs on the street, an EIR should be required. The industry is trying to reach a 20% reduction in 
emissions and more cabs on street means they won't meet this goal. 

Barry Korengold stated that the Board should cut its own salary by 25%. Medallion holders and taxi 
drivers will suffer. If you put more cabs on street, everybody's income will be affected. It is wrong 
to put taxis into the budget without a plan. 

Tariq Mehmood suggested running taxis on a shared basis along certain transit corridors such as 
Geary. This will get people to their destination faster and taxis won't run empty on those routes. It 
would also reduce the number of Muni buses and employees. 

RESOLUTION 09-064 

On motion to approve: 



ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Heinicke, Lee, and Nolan 
NAYES - Black, McCray and Oka 

1 3. Approving a methodology for indexing charges by using a formula incorporating labor 
charges and the Bay Area Consumer Price Index to be applied to transit fares, parking citation 
fines, parking garage rates and other relevant charges beginning Fiscal Year 201 1. 
(Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and plan.) (Sonali Bose) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel states that he is generally supportive. Further public notice for specific changes would 
still be required. He wondered what the proposed rates would have been if this had been put into 
effect last year. 

RESOLUTION 09-065 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

14. Adopting criteria establishing the type of information which would be sufficient to warrant 
an investigation into the illegal operation of a taxi business or vehicle, and establishing a fine 
in the amount of $5,000 for each violation. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, 
resolution and Government Code.) (Christiane Hayashi) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto expressed hope the Board will vote unanimously to approve this item. He 
commented that the Board needs to hear from Sergeant Reynolds about enforcement. 

Emil Lawrence asked the Board to knock the "fine stuff off. Everyone breaks the law daily 
and a $5,000 fine is absurd. A company that is doing something illegal should be put out of 
business. 

Mark Gruberg urged the Board to pass the resolution. There are fines that can be applied as 
administrative penalties but they aren't enforcement. This won't be anything without 
enforcement. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that they want to get rid of illegal limousines. They should be put out 
of business. It's a good thing to have a $5,000 fine. 

Barry Korengold stated that the language needed to be clarified so it's clear that this relates to 
illegal cabs. He suggested that staff get the money to enforce illegal cabs from illegal cabs and 
not from legal cabs. 

9 



Abdulhadi Yassin states that he worked for a taxi company before he came to Muni. Legal 
companies doing business in outer neighborhoods are being picked on. Before you enforce 
fines, consider the needs of the city. 

Hansu Kim encouraged support. Illegal limousines and pirate taxis are one of the top three 
taxicab issues. 

RESOLUTION 09-066 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto stated that he doesn't object to the color scheme changes but expressed concern 
whether Vina Cab is compliant with all rules and regulations. Staff should make sure that cab 
companies operate appropriately before allowing medallions to be transferred. An inquiry 
should be made regarding why so many medallion holders are leaving Arrow Cab. 

Nishan Swei, Royal Taxi, stated that Royal Taxi is a good corporation with a good rating in the 

10 



industry. Companies should have a minimum of 20 cabs to be able to go into business. 

Mary McGuire stated that nothing underhanded is going on. There is a rumor regarding Arrow 
Cab going up for sale.

plans are needed for all service rates, fares, fees and service changes. The Board should ask for 
detailed plans and regular progress reports. Mr. Pilpel stated that Item 12 was a dangerous delegation 
of additional authority. 

Naeem Malik expressed appreciation to Director Heinicke for the suggestion regarding taxicab rental 
fees. Drivers have to pay the gate, tips and gas before they make any money. Drivers should fight for 
their rights. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that he often sees cars parked at expired meters but PCO's aren't ticketing 
them. There are drivers who would be willing to own a medallion. Mr. Mehmood discussed a 
"taxicab shared ride" approach for Geary Blvd. and other main arteries. 

Mark Gruberg suggested that the taxi industry should be part of the Translink program. The idea of a 
fixed route or semi-fixed route has been around for ages and is worth looking at. This service could 
be a supplement and compliment to bus service. 

Paul Hogarth stated that eliminating enforcement on Sunday wasn't a wise move because it was a $9 
million opportunity to restore service cuts. He would have liked to see each amendment to the budget 
voted separately. 

Don Baker stated that Item 12 was a shift in power and the Board needs to stay involved. Half of the 
buses at night didn't have placards announcing service cuts. There needs to be better notification and 
follow through with the public. The SFPD work order doesn't sound right. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS/PARKING AUTHORITY 
COMMISSION ARE RECOMMENDED FOR ACTION AS STATED BY THE SFMTA 
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. 
EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL CALENDAR ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR 
REVIEW AT 1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th FLOOR. 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

10. Approving the SFMTA's 2009-2010 Amended Operating budget in the amount of $779 million; 
certifying that the amended operating budget is adequate in making substantial progress towards 
meeting established performance standards; finding it necessary to increase certain fees, rates and 
charges that support public transit service, and that recover costs related to the regulation of the taxi 
industry; finding it necessary to reduce or eliminate certain public transit services; and finding that 
such increases in fees, rates and charges that support public transit, taxi-related regulatory fees and 
Muni service reductions are statutorily exempt from review under CEQA; approving increases in 
various fees, fares, rates and charges including on-street parking rates, taxi fees, paratransit and transit 



fares and passes; acting as the Parking Authority Commission approving off-street parking rates for 
the Lombard Street, Moscone Center, North Beach, Performing Arts, Polk Bush and SF General 
Hospital garages; approving expanded parking meter enforcement from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days 
per week except for New Year's day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas; concurring with the Controller's 
certification that parking citation processing and collection; janitorial services for metered parking 
lots and shop facilities; facility security services; paratransit services; parking meter collection and 
coin counting services; low-level platform maintenance services; and vehicle towing, storage and 
disposal services can be practically performed by private contractors at a lesser cost than to provide 
the same services with city employees; affirming that all provisions of Resolution 08-066 that 
approved the original operating budget for Fiscal Year 2010 remain in full force except to the extent 
that they are specifically modified by this resolution; and authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to 
make technical and clerical corrections and allocate additional revenues in order to fund additional 
adjustments to the operating budget, provided that the Executive Director/CEO shall return to the 
SFMTA Board of Directors for approval of technical or clerical corrections that exceed a five percent 
increase of the total amended budget. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) 
(Sonali Bose) 

Director Heinicke arrived. 

Chairman Nolan outlined the process for the vote. He stated that he will ask that all community lines 
be extended to 1 1 p.m.; that the plan to enforce meters on Sunday and in the evening be eliminated; 
that the Parking Authority Commission hire an auditor to review work orders and that staff vigorously 
explore options for the 2010 ballot. 

Sonali Bose, Chief Financial Officer and Ken McDonald, Chief Operating Officer presented the staff 
report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Speakers opposed to the proposal to auction taxi medallions: Joe Mirabila, Jay Ruiz, Michael 
Gibbons, Francoise Spiegelman, Victoria Lansdown, Mark Gruberg, Jack Trad, David Barlow, Bill 
Mounsey, JoanAnn Radu-Sonako, Colin Marcoux, Ed Healy, Frank Fahy, Barry Korengold, Rua 
Graffis, Craig Wilson, Peter Witt, Don Baker, Herbert Weiner 

Speakers in support for auctioning taxi medallions: Charles Rathbone 

Speakers opposed to the proposal regarding parking garage rates and extending hours for parking 
meter enforcement: Pat Christenen 



Speakers opposed to the proposal regarding Muni service and/or fare increases: Jackie Sachs; Walter 
Scott, Aleena Galloway, Dolores Naranjo, Gaetana Caldwell Smith, Alain Dang, Sherry Williams, 
Reginald McCray, Paul Hogarth, Brian Brackney, Don Baker, Herbert Weiner 

David Pilpel provided his comments in writing and expressed his willingness to provide other 

3 



alternatives for the service changes. 

Hansu Kim expressed hope that the SFMTA would include the taxi industry in an open and 
transparent process. He stated that policy should drive reforms rather than budgetary needs. Taxis 
should be considered as a public/private partnership. Taxicabs should be utilized on main transit 
corridors. 

Mike Spain discussed three different plans for the sale of medallions. 

Herschel Dosier stated this budget is a fraud. 

Gillian Gillett expressed support for eliminating the 26-Valencia. 

Naeem Malik stated that the proposal by UTW/Asian Law Caucus will make taxi drivers' lives better. 
The SFMTA should assign one medallion to two drivers who would then drive the day and night 
shifts. Whatever the outcome, the money belongs to cab drivers and shouldn't be used for any other 
purpose. 

Dave Schneider stated that what is happening in the City may be a reflection of what's happening 
elsewhere in America and at other bus properties. The SFMTA should ask Washington D.C. for 
money for operating expenditures. 

Susan Forman stated that she doesn't mind if service on community lines ends at 1 1 p.m. and she 
willing to pay more for a senior pass. 

Bob Allen stated that the Board must frame the budget discussion around San Francisco as a Transit- 
First city. The Board should stand up regarding the work order issue. The SFMTA doesn't get its fair 
share of regional funds from MTC. Mum shouldn't cut service and that the Lifeline pass should be 
improved. 

Maya Dhillon urged riders to refrain from using the 14-Mission and 49-Van Ness lines in the wake of 
the swine flu pandemic. 

Chairman Nolan read the city's policy on discrimination. 

Manish Champsee stated that the SFMTA should deliver one hundred percent of its' service and 
should look at more limited buses and at stop consolidation. 



Paul Wermer expressed appreciation to staff for maintaining the 3-Jackson. 

Chairman Nolan moved to amend the budget resolution to eliminate the proposal to enforce parking 
meters on Sunday; to add $3 for courthouse fees; eliminate extending parking meter enforcement to 
1 1 p.m. and to continue service on all community lines to 1 1 p.m. 



Director Heinicke requested an additional amendment regarding an independent audit of work orders. 

Deputy City Attorney Julia Friedlander read the language that would be added to the resolution to 
reflect Chairman Nolan and Director Heinicke's amendments 

PUBLIC COMMENT on the amendments: 

David Pilpel discussed the CEQA claim exemption. 

On motion to amend the resolution: 

ADOPTED: AYES -Black, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

NAYES - Beach and McCray 

Vice Chairman McCray requested that staff provide regular reports after implementation of the 
service changes.

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

NAYES - McCray 

11. Acting as both the SFMTA Board of Directors and Parking Authority Commission, authorizing 
the SFMTA Executive Director/CEO to execute Contract SFMTA 2008/09-08, Advertising on 
SFMTA Vehicles and Other Property, with Titan Outdoor including a five-year term and a minimum 
annual guarantee to the SFMTA. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution, selection 
panel report and contract.) (Sonali Bose) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Anthony Leones, CBS Outdoor, stated that they had filed a protest after the notice of intent to award 
was made. Staff should make a fully informed decision regarding the financial stability of the 
proposed contractor. It is appropriate to ask whether both proposers are current in their payment at 
other transit agencies. 

Bill Apfelbaum, Titan Worldwide stated that the company is financially stable. Titan has submitted a 
nonrefundable check and just after final award, they will provide a $4 million letter of credit. 

Deputy City Attorney Friedlander stated that there was no legal obstacle to awarding the contract. 

RESOLUTION 09-069 



On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

12. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO or designee to advertise solicitation requests without 
SFMTA Board approval; approve and execute any contract having anticipated expenditures or 
revenues equal to or less than $500,000; approve and execute contract modifications of expenditure 
contracts for cumulative increases in contract amount, time or scope up to 20% of the original 
contract. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and chart.) (Debra Johnson) 

This item was removed from the agenda at the request of staff. 

13. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to execute a contract with DriveCam, Inc. using the 
existing DriveCam contract with the General Services Administration contract number GS-35F- 
0623S to purchase equipment, installation and managed services that will enable the SFMTA to 
implement a Driver Risk Management System to improve safety at a cost not to exceed $1,200,000.

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka

for an amount not to exceed $5,000,000 and an initial term of five years with an option to extend for 
an additional five years. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and contract.) (Ken 
McDonald) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that he is not sure that the Agency has demonstrated the need for this service. This 
is a good example of contract costs not being properly controlled. The SFMTA should do as much as 
possible with in-house staff. 

Vice Chairman McCray requested an overview of the other capital project needs and the plan to 
upgrade all systems. 

RESOLUTION 09-071 

On motion to approve: 



ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka

in progress. He discussed several sections regarding driver permits and permit transferability that

medallions.

(Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Christiane Hayashi) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto stated that the Board should ask why medallions were leaving United Cab. Town 
Taxi doesn't have a good dispatch service. Allowing these transfers raises the question of whether 
the public will be better served. It is unprecedented to approve a transfer without knowing where the 
cab driver is going to. The former Taxi Commission made these transfers known to the public prior 
to approval. 

Jay Mendel, Town Taxi, stated that the decision of United Cab workers to move to Town Taxi was 
carefully thought through. Town Taxi is about to install the most advanced GPS-based dispatch 
system in the industry. It will give drivers the opportunity to expand their business and earnings. 

Vice Chairman McCray expressed concern about approving a color scheme change without knowing 
where the drivers were going. He moved to amend the resolution to remove Mr. Sharp and Mr. 
Jacobson from the list. 



On motion to amend the resolution by removing Gary Sharp and Ralph Jacobson:

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Sunshine labor agreements 
-Ongoing Activities 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford presented special recognition awards to Michael Chan, application 
support manager, Finance and Information Technology; Mike Sallaberry, transportation engineer,

Mr. Ford invited the Board to the 47 Annual Cable Car Bell Ringing Competition. 

Chief of Staff/Director of Administration Debra Johnson presented labor agreements with TWU 
Local 250-A; TWU, Local 200; IAM Local 1414; SEIU Local 21; MEA; and IBEW Local 6. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, chairman, Citizens' Advisory Council, presented the report. 

9. Public Comment 

Norm Rolfe stated that the SFMTA should get the money stolen from transit properties and 
redirect it to transit and other humanitarian services. Funds to rebuild freeways should be used 
for humanitarian purposes. Some cable cars have a plaque on them from companies who gave 
money to rebuild the cable car system. 

Herbert Weiner stated that there has been a change in service to the 2-Clement which will result 
in people having to walk one block to either California or Geary. This will create a hardship for 
the elderly, sick or disabled. He suggested adding a stop so that the 38-Geary would stop on 
Clement Street and synchronizing the schedule so people won't have to wait a long time to 
transfer. 

Emil Lawrence discussed the taxi rules and regulations and stated that he has filed a criminal 
complaint against the Board for shoving taxi rules down our throats. It's not proper to take 
money from taxi drivers and the money should be given back to drivers. 

Robin Krop expressed concern about the quality of shocks and suspensions in taxi cabs. Ms. 
Krop stated that bad shocks have resulted in her hip being dislocated. Cabs that are allowed to be 
on the road for eight years is too much. 



Mai k c irubcrg stated that he wished there was more input by the public on issues such as the one 
expressed by the previous speaker. The advantage of Prop K is that a driver who is responsible 
tor a cab must also drive the cab. Supervisor Daly has introduced a ballot measure that would 
change the city charter, prevent fundamental aspects of Prop K from being overturned and 
provide benefits for cab drivers. This charter amendment is sorely needed. 

Barry Taranto stated that there have been improvements to the website. He doesn't have time to 
read packets before the meeting so the materials need to be brought to the meeting. He stated 
that approval of a color scheme change should still come before the Board. Not discussing them 
publicly will be a disservice to the industry and public. Mr. Taranto would like to see transit fare 
inspectors on lines where there are the most violations. 

Barry Korengold expressed disappointment about the sale of taxi medallions and expressed 
concern that the industry will be looked on as an opportunity to resolve Muni's debt. If the 
industry is saddled with this debt, he questioned whether there will be any improvement or 
provision of health care or benefits. 

Chairman Nolan requested information about the SFMTA's role regarding the condition of 
taxicabs.

Bose) 

# 
Sonali Bose, chief financial officer and Kenneth McDonald, chief operating officer, presented the 
staff report. 

Vice Chairman McCray requested updates on the budget as it moves ahead. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Emil Lawrence stated that this is a fantasy budget. Payroll is higher next year than this year. The 
city is in bankruptcy and the Board is going off a cliff pontificating about small revenues here 
and there. The SFMTA is afraid to deal with the unions and has a structural problem that won't 
go away. You're still handing out premium pay and overtime. Raising fees won't solve the 
problem. The SFMTA will be in the same boat in 12 months. 

Tom Radulovich, Livable City, stated that they're happy with the budget and are glad to see that 
increases to enforcement are back. The BART/Muni pass will hurt both agencies. Mr. 



Radulovich expressed support for smart parking, managing parking intelligently and 
sustainability. 

Mark Caswell expressed appreciation to staff for revisiting parking revenues, especially charging 
for evening and Sunday parking. 

Robin Krop discussed service enhancements during the evening rush hour and expressed 
frustration that she is not able to get on a vehicle during rush hour. 

Dave Schneider stated that the SFMTA, city and state budgets all impact each other. He noted 
that Transportation Secretary LaHood is open to using federal economic stimulus money for 
operating purposes. 

12. Discussion and vote pursuant to Administrative Code Section 67.10(d) as to whether to 
conduct a closed session and invoke the attorney-client privilege. 

On motion to invoke the attorney-client privilege: unanimously approved (Lee-absent). 

PUBLIC COMMENT on Closed Session: 

Barry Taranto stated that he is familiar with the plaintiffs. Craig Yates is disabled and has a van 
that is equipped for his needs. Mr. Taranto expressed concern about what this parking garage has 
done. He stated that it is important to keep elevators operating.

the proposals such as ramped taxi equipment requirements, faulty equipment and the luggage 
overcharge. He stated that over regulating cabdrivers hasn't improved service. 

Emile Lawrence stated that he had previously a submitted letter to the City Attorney regarding the 
manipulation of commission hearings. Mr. Lawrence provided a copy of the letter to the Board 
Secretary. These regulations cut into the income of taxi drivers and they are out of line with what a 
taxi driver makes. This was rubber stamped two weeks ago without due process, and without 
discussion with taxi drivers.

9. Presentation and discussion of revenue opportunities, (^xplarratorv documents include a slide 
presentation.) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, presented the report. 

Director Oka urged staff to push the state legislature to restore the original intent to have users of 
disabled placards pay to park. 

Chairman Nolan outlined several principles that staff should follow with regard to a revenue 
option and urged staff to explore regional cooperation measures such as the purchase of fuel. 

Director Heinicke requested additional research on a possible program to generate revenue from 
rental cars. 



Director Beach requested a report on the number of B ART/Muni passes sold and the impact of 
the increase on service in the Mission corridor. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold stated that when the number of buses is reduced, buses are likely to be more 
crowded. The transfer policy may need to be revisited. The SFMTA should do a study before 
accepting the contention that transfers are given with too much time. He inquired how the extra 
fee on BART would impact the senior/disabled experiment. There is a lot of history with 
disabled placards. Staff should review the 2007 Civil Grand Jury report. 

Rafael Cabrera, TWU Local 250- A, stated that it's not fair to say that operators are misusing 
transfers. Boarding through the rear door is out of hand and operators have received mixed 
messages about whether it's okay or not. Front line people need to have clear direction and the 
right tools. 

Mark Gruberg stated that the capital budget includes a critical needs and a wish list. There are 
some deficiencies that won't be met. Addressing the operating budget is a higher priority. A 
fuel tax has limitations and restrictions. The most practical solution may be a vehicle license fee 
and it could possibly be structured as a carbon based fee. 

10. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to execute a one-year policy with American 
Merchants Casualty Company aad Everest National Insurance Company for an annual premium 
of $2,433,000 for a $25,000,000 excess liability limit with a $5,000,000 self-insured retention 
level. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and attachments.) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, Matt Hanson, manager, and J"#a Friedlander., deputy city 
attorney presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob P]jm*faold stated that the i^ea of tak^^- coverage is worth pursuing and that staff should 
-' iew the 2006/2007 C- Vl1 Grand jury report. The city should get *ome insurance policy. 

Norm Rolfe stated that the policy bas,a narrow range and with only one case that would fit the 
parameters, this policy isn't wmth m

Mr. Ford discussed a court case regarding a PCO and a member of the public who was shouting 
obscenities at the PCO. The assailant was taken into custody and a jury found the defendant guilty of a 
misdemeanor. An appeal will be heard in September. 

Mr. Ford reported on fulfilling the "Make-A-Wish" foundation request for Henry Mulvey who wanted to 
ride historic trolley car #952. 

Bond Yee, director, Parking & Traffic, reviewed the work planned for the Bay Bridge which will require 
closure of the bridge over the Labor Day weekend. 

Julia Friedlander, deputy city attorney, reviewed the status of purchasing insurance. As of July 23, all 
issues were resolved and the policy was procured. The policy covers occurrences from July 1, 2009 
through June 30, 2010. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Irwin Lum, president, TWU-Local 250- A, stated that unions members consider safety to be crucial. They 
want to identify problems and figure out how to fix the issue. The on-time performance measure has put 
pressure on 250-A members and has created unsafe situations. Operators have been disciplined for being 
late. It's a "no-win" situation when the schedules aren't realistic. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 



l ). Public Comment 

James Bryant, SEIU 1021, stated that the SEIU and its' members have a problem with the fact that there i; 
no written and signed agreement in place. The July 4 holiday was removed from employee's pay. Mr. 
Bryant expressed concern that the Board received information that wasn't true. Members have asked for 
copies of the agreement and have requested resolution. Mr. Bryant expressed hope that the Board would 
resolve the problem. 

Dominic Garrett, SEIU, stated that the SFMTA has taken illegal concessions. There was no contract in 
place when the concessions went into effect. The SFMTA has refused to meet with SEIU. Parking 
Control Officers are opposed to the pay by cell system because the pilot program didn't work. The syster 
was down most of the time during the pilot period. The safety mask provided by the SFMTA doesn't fit 
well on people who have facial hair. 

John Avalos, Supervisor, BOS, expressed support for good faith bargaining. 

Reggie Drake, SEIU, stated that the SFMTA doesn't have a contract with SEIU regarding concessions. 
Members don't like the concessions and want them to be given back. 

Damita Davis Howard, SEIU 1021, stated that employees want to do their part but the SFMTA has to do 
theirs. She requested that the Board ask staff to negotiate in good faith. 

Ernestine Weiss stated that conditions on the F line are disgraceful. There is no supervision or discipline; 
A supervisor should be at Ferry Building. People are packed into vehicles and it's hard to get off of a 
vehicle safely. Drivers are distracted by people are talking to them. Training has to do a better job. 

Dorian Maxwell stated that Muni schedules violate safety rules. Management has failed to fix the 
problem and then uses operators as scapegoats. Traffic signals aren't transit friendly on some routes. 
Operators are driving buses that exceed the maximum load. There are no restrooms for operators. 
Schedules need to address driver recovery time. 

Karen Ames stated that the arts groups in the Civic Center area have enjoyed a productive relationship 
with Performing Arts Garage and expressed hope that the standard garage hours will continue in the 
future. The ability to arrive early for a performance contributes to the economic vitality of the 
neighborhood. 

James Haas expressed support for the postponement of Item 12. Civic Center isn't a static place. The ci 
has committed to build a new office building at Golden Gate and Polk Street. The Civic Center 
Auditorium will have a new and expanded use. A new performing arts venue is going to be built with 
over 750 seats. Some initiatives have been made in the short term but they will have little effect if the 
public is unaware. Staff needs to improve the public's knowledge of their parking options. Staff needs 1 
improve traffic flow at the Civic Center garage. The suggestion that it will cost $800,000 to conduct an 
EIR is "out of whack" and needs to be reviewed because the Market/Octavia EIR addressed many of the 
same issues. 



Francisco Da Costa expressed hope that the Board heard the message from Supervisor Avalos and union 
members and that the Board will do the right thing. Speaking about recent accidents, Mr. Da Costa stated 
that SFMTA vehicles can't be controlled from any central command and there is no accountability or 
transparency. Infrastructure has to be upgraded. The SFMTA needs to tell its constituents whether the 
SFMTA has a reliable system. 

Mark Gruberg expressed hope that the distinction between Muni drivers and cab drivers is appreciated. 
Both are responsible for transporting the public and both have dangerous jobs however there is a stark 
contrast in their working conditions, pay and benefits. The Daly charter amendment would have 
preserved Prop. K principles but it was derailed. It would have ensured that cab drivers would have 
received disability and retirement benefits. The Board has not discussed Prop. K and whether to revise it. 

Roger Bazeley asked for a resolution in support of improving pedestrian safety. He stated that traffic 
safety enhancements should be installed near major senior centers, schools, libraries, etc. which are 
located contiguous to a major arterial street or transit corridor or near major intersections. Poor 
maintenance due to construction is dismantling the good work of new crosswalk markings. There aren't 
enough personnel who can correct defective signs or trim trees to make signs visible. 

■Pci^F "■''itt st^tr.rl t!".r;t he i." dccnlv concerned about the dir£Cti r> n of tsxis ^ p PYnrpssed concern about 
misinformation and concealed information that was provided to the defunct Taxi Commission. Mr. Witt 
provided a customer survey to the Board and stated that he has been submitting customer surveys to 
former Taxi Commission for the past ten years. He expressed concern about the mental health and 
psychological stresses of cab drivers. Taxi drivers don't have a union. The SFMTA mission doesn't 
include taxis. Mr. Witt played an audio tape from a 1997 Taxi Commission meeting regarding customer 
surveys. 

Emile Lawrence expressed appreciation that union members were complaining about making $27/hour 
when taxi drivers have zero. Mr. Lawrence requested that keys to all bathrooms used by Muni Drivers be 
provided to every taxi driver. If the SFMTA doesn't comply, he will file a complaint for failure. Muni 
drivers don't have more rights than taxi drivers. There needs to be more transparency on taxi issues and 
the Board needs to have a separate taxi meeting. If you don't have a separate discussion on taxis, Mr. 
Lawrence will file a complaint and ask for a $10,000 per day fine. 

Barry Taranto stated that the recent accidents disturb him. There are a lot of supervisors at intersections 
who are on their cell phones. An overhaul of the inspector system is very important. Drivers need to 
make sure that they aren't close to each other. The Board needs to get a public report as soon as the 
investigation is done. Buses should be included in the "Proof of Payment" program. Inspectors should 
deter people forever from not paying their fare. Mum fares are a bargain. Cab drivers don't make what an 
operator makes. White zones aren't being enforced during evening hours at hotels.

AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR ACTION AS STATED BY THE 
SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE.

Item 10. 2Q was severed from the agenda at the request of a member of the public.

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

(10.3) Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to execute and file applications for funding under the FT

Roger Bazeley requested improved markings for cable cars. Traffic doesn't stop for people who alight

Roger Bazeley stated that miles of bike lanes will be added as part of the Bicycle Plan. There are vehicle 
codes that outline the rules that cyclists must follow. Bike injuries and fatalities are low but there is a 
problem with the lack of bicycle licensing. Cyclists should be required to have protective headgear and

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that Peter Straus's retirement is a huge loss for the agency. Mr. Straus contributed to 
the SFMTA and Caltrain. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

David Pilpel noted that staff has not reported on the financial impact of delaying implementation of the 
service changes. The use of part-time drivers was supposed to annualize at $5 million but the use of full- 
time operators would eliminate savings. Mr. Pilpel stated that losing Ken McDonald will increase 
problems and expressed interest in the implementation plan. 

Wannee Ratansanguan stated that paratransit van service has helped her get to her appointments on time 
and she expressed appreciation to staff for their assistance. 

Bud Hazelkorn spoke about Yellow Cab's recent demand of one week of gate fees in advance. Cab 
drivers are entitled to basic rights. 

Mark Gruberg stated that Yellow Cab is asking drivers to put up a deposit for future shifts. Drivers will 
have to put up $500 or more which will create a tremendous hardship. If Yellow Cab does it, others will 
do it as well Tracy vs. Yellow Cab permanently enjoined Yellow Cab from doing this. This is illegal. 

Bhairavi Desai, New York Taxi Workers Alliance, stated that whenever any city talks about selling 
medallions that city looks to New York as the best system in the country. Once medallion systems are 
brought into the industry, driver working conditions become much more exacerbated. Drivers need 
health care because they work in dangerous situations. 'When New York cab drivers demand protection, 



they arc repeatedly told that the money has to go toward reinvestment in medallions and that there is no 
money left for workers. 

Javed Tariq, New York Taxi Workers Alliance, stated that the condition of cab drivers is the same across 
the country. He expressed opposition to the sale of corporate medallions. It will create an enormous 
disaster. Instead of selling medallions to corporations, the Board should give benefits to drivers. 

Rua Graffis stated that companies have been charging deposits for years and when drivers leave 
companies they have difficulty getting their money back. Cab drivers are part of the city's answer to 
traffic congestion and air pollution.' Drivers have a difficult and dangerous job and they don't make a lot 
of money. A medallion is a light at the end of the tunnel. 

Hansu Kim, San Francisco Taxi Coalition, stated that there is a lot of contention with taxi reform but 
there is widespread consensus that an exit strategy must be created for elderly or disabled medallion 
holders. Enforcement of illegal taxis must be a top priority. Please include drivers in the solution. 
There needs to be a way to address the number of taxis needed to operate in San Francisco. Medallions 
need to be put in the hands of taxi drivers. 

Sentavehu Silassie Los Angeles Taxi Workers Alliance pixw^-ss— d su^—crt for San Francisco cab drivers. 



rr • 



Betty Hung, Inner City Law Center stated that San Francisco has a reputation for having a more sound 
and fair taxi policy primarily because medallions are in the hands of full time drivers. Any proposal to 
sell medallions to private companies will be a step backwards. It will create sweat shops. It is critical fo 
drivers to have basic benefits. 

Barry Taranto stated that Mr. Pantaglian should be recognized because he helped rearrange the taxi stand 
at the 24 th St. BART station. The Drumm Street changes are a huge mistake and should be revisited. 
Christiane Hayashi needs staff. 

Barry Korengold, San Francisco Cab Drivers Association, expressed support for keeping the basic 
principles of Prop K. An auction system for medallions would hurt drivers. It is important for public 
safety to keep good drivers driving. Medallions should go to individuals and not to corporations. 
Medallion holders should be let out of the driving retirement at age 65 or after they've reached a certain 
number of hours on the road.

Chairman Nolan set a two minute time limit per speaker. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Jennifer Stuart, Legislative assistant to Sup Alioto-Pier, relayed the Supervisor's appreciation to Exec. 
Director Ford for the agreement reached with merchants and neighbors and stated that Supervisor Alioto- 
Pier was withdrawing her previous opposition to the 41 Union proposal. 

Speakers opposed to the 21 Hayes proposal: Martha Campbell and Christine Elbel. 

Speakers opposed to the 10 Townsend proposal: Ron Fiore, Susan Schindler and Thomas Bonelli. 

Speakers who support the 10 Townsend proposal: Mauri Schwartz 

Speakers opposed to the 2 Clement 14 th Ave. option: Elizabeth Hudsen, Lee Schwager, Todd Gerstein, 
Doris Lee, Donna Kim, Jason Jungeris, Joninna Simpson, Fern Eisenberg, Michael Sweet, Ethan Weiss, 
Mikah Hayman and Abigail Glynn. 

Sneakers oonosed to the 2 Clement Funston ontion: Patricia Stirling Jeremv Pasternak Brian Dohert v 
Ken Tse, Paul Yieh, Karen Hindin, Kathleen Stirling, Eric Potasnner, Keith Dnssel, Smith Jang, Sue 
Jang, Wilson Jang and Elizabeth Tippin 

Speakers opposed to the proposal to use articulated buses on the 41 Union line: David Coyle, Geoff 
Wood, Lesley Leonhardt, Michael Williams, Patricia Vaughy and Gloria Fontanello. 

Irwin Lum, TWU Local 250-A, stated that the safety of drivers and pedestrians is primary. Putting 
another bus onto Park Presidio may create more safety issues. There is no restroom in that area. People 
will speed and thus will create more accidents. The 10 and 12 lines should run up Arkansas to take care 
of people in public housing. A short loop for the 12 Folsom on Pacific is needed for riders. The right 
turn from Fulton onto Shrader for the 2 1 Hayes will be a problem. 

Herbert Weiner stated that the 2 Clement options create hardships for seniors, children, residents and 
people with disabilities that don't exist with the current route. Neighbors shouldn't be pitted against each 
other and a new terminal must benefit all parties. 

Barry Taranto expressed agreement with Mr. Weiner. It is a mistake to put a terminal on 14 th Ave. Staff 
needs to work out a better compromise. Cabs are parked at the Drumm St. cab stand at all times and it's 
the busiest cab stand in the city. Reducing the cab stand on Drumm St. is a bad idea 

Rua Graffis expressed appreciation for the additional taxi zone on Mission at 24 th Street and noted that 
one is also needed at Mission at 16 th . Cab drivers get ticketed for dropping off passengers with 
disabilities. They need a second loading/unloading zone or a taxi zone on Mission at 24 th and at Mission 
and 1 6 th St. Those locations also need a curb cut. 



14 



David Pilpel staled that this is the first time that the Funston option has been aired. He is still considering 
appealing the April decision to the Board of Supervisors. This 2 Clement proposal impacts neighbors 
and riders and therefore, should undergo full environmental review. 

( hainnan Nolan closed public comment and expressed appreciation to the public for discussing their 
concerns. He noted that the Board has the difficult task of weighing needs of the city as a whole against 
needs of individuals and neighborhoods. He suggested that a major review six months after 
implementation would be appropriate. 

Director Beach requested that the Board receive a copy of the brochure showing the route changes. 

The Board requested that staff use a number other than "8" for the additional service being added to the 
9-San Bruno serving the Bayview, Excelsior and Chinatown neighborhoods in order to mirrimize 
confusion with numbers that are similar, especially when viewed on digital destination signs. Mr. Ford 
stated that the SFMTA would use "1 1". 

On the motion to amend the resolution to not establish bus stops for 10 Townsend line on Wisconsin 
Street at 22 nd Street, Madera Street and 23 rd Street. 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka

13. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to execute Contract No. APT 106-01, Motor Coach 
Component Lifecycle Rehabilitation Project, with Complete Coach Works in an amount not to exceed 
$12,598,315 and for a term not to exceed four years. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, 
resolution and contract.) (Ken McDonald) 

No public comment. 

RESOLUTION 09-157 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

14. Adopting a policy requiring the SFMTA to expedite processing of the waiting list for taxi medallion 
permits through administrative and enforcement actions, in order to reduce the waiting time for a taxi 
medallion to ten years or less. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Christiane 
Hayashi) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Hansu Kim expressed support for cleaning up and expediting the wait list but thinks that lowering the 
wait time to ten years is just about impossible. 

Barry Taranto urged approval of the item and added that Ms. Hayashi needs staff. 

Carl Macmurdo expressed support for the legislation to clean up list but noted that ten years creates a 
false impression. The list currently takes 14 years. Prop K can't be fixed with a band aid. Additional 
staff should be hired for Ms. Hayashi. 

Mark Gruberg expressed support for cleaning up the list. Mr. Gruberg expressed concern regarding 
making only two attempts to contact someone and then removing them from the list after failing to 
respond after 30 days. Many drivers return to their country of origin for extended visits and it would be 
wrong to remove somebody who has spent many years on the list because they made a minor mistake of 
not letting the SFMTA know they were out of the country. 

Barry Korengold stated that the length of time on the list has been exaggerated and there are ulterior 
motives by people who say it's not realistic to think that the list can be cut. Many people on the list 
aren't eligible to get a medallion. The process can move faster than it does now. 

Rua Graffis acknowledged staff for their efforts to clean up the list. A ten year wait list is reasonable. It 
takes seven years to go from a new and inefficient cab driver to a safe, efficient driver. This will serve 
the city well. We need to figure out how to make the industry good enough to provide healthcare and 
retirement benefits for everyone.

families in the future. 

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Report on Safety 
-Ongoing Activities 

The report on safety was continued to a future meeting. 

Executive Director/CEO Ford discussed the storm over the past weekend; the taxi reform proposal; and a 
pilot program to improve transit and pedestrian conditions on Market Street. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Hansu Kim, SF Taxi Coalition, spoke about the taxi medallion reform proposal. He applauded the 
Executive Director for holding meetings to discuss the different opinions. The plan presented at the 
Policy and Ciovemance Committee was ollensrve and opposed t)y staKenoiders. i aJving income ixom 
medallion holders is sacrosanct and will be unanimously opposed. 

Jim Gillespie, Yellow Cab stated that there was zero support for the medallion plan due to the negative 
impact on passengers, the city and cab drivers. He expressed hope for a collaborative effort to solve 
issues with revenue, taxi service, opportunities for career cab drivers and taxi companies. 

Carl Macmurdo echoed comments made by previous speakers. He stated that the City could use the 
money from newly issued medallions as operational revenue. 

Mike Spain stated that Prop K has been a difficult law and it is a hodgepodge of ideas. The recent plan 
is a scheme to raise money for the City rather than a plan for the City. Major American cities have found 
that selling permits to operators is efficient. The City wouldn't be the regulator. Bikes need to be 
licensed. 

Peter Witt stated that he sees a real and determined effort to turn a really bad plan into a bad plan. We're 
going backwards. There are more cabs and cars per capita in San Francisco than in any other city in the 
U.S. 

Mary McGuire stated that the proposal wasn't posted on the internet. Cab drivers feel buried and that 
they don't have an opportunity to be heard. She had several questions about the proposal. 

Barry Taranto stated that Market Street is a good idea but doesn't know how it will be enforced. The 
SFMTA should make sure that the police know that cab drivers are exempt from the prohibition. He 
expressed hope that limousines won't be exempt. He also discussed the Taxi Medallion Reform 
proposal. 



Norman Rolfe stated that the SFMTA is forcing autos off of Market Street but at the last meeting, the 
Board approved a traffic change that will encourage right-turns onto Market Street. The "Transit First" 
policy should be considered. He urged reconsideration of the action taken at the Sept. 1 meeting. 

Victoria Lansdovvn stated that it's unfortunate that the cab industry was folded into the SFMTA. The 
cab industry is too vast and complex to be folded in with the Human Resources department. This move 
is ill advised and should be reassessed. Reform removes any chance for a taxi driver to achieve financial 

stability. 

Barry Korengold, SF Cab Drivers Association, thanked the SFMTA for the dialogue on this matter. He 
understands the plan is just a first step and he looks forward to discussing it. Mr. Korengold encouraged 
more input from the taxi industry. 

Bill Mounsey stated that 90% of the cab industry is against the proposal. You've got to have town hall 
meetings. Taxi drivers need to have their own person with whom we can communicate. People who 
drive taxis are the only people who understand the industry. The proposal is a complete counter 
representation of the cab industry. 

Ed Healy stated that past administrations would jam proposals down our throats. He looks forward to 
the town hall meetings. 

Mark Gruberg stated that they were promised that Prop K would be protected. Any plan that violates 
that promise will result in no faith that future promises will be kept. Faith and trust needs to be restored. 
He encouraged the Market Street experiment. 

Frank Fahy stated that there were taxi drivers in Roman times. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel. 
The City gets enormous benefit from taxi fares. The plan needs to be kept simple. The City will be 
sorry if it adopts this plan. 

Dan Hinds, National/Veterans Cab, stated that some reforms to Prop K could make the industry more 
effective. Prop K reforms need to make it beneficial for people who choose to drive a cab as a career. 
We need to take care of older drivers who may have a disability and we need to address service. 

Patricia Vaughey stated that public meetings should be tape recorded. The public doesn't want to see 
another farce like the TEP where half of the neighborhoods weren't included in meetings. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 



James Musalski stated that the budget is balanced on the back of customers. Instead, the SFMTA shoulc 
cut salaries. All you do is raise fares and now you're cutting service. The Executive Director hasn't 
done anything but dig deeper into debt. 

Patricia Vaughey stated that certain groups in Cow Hollow weren't part of the discussion regarding 
articulated buses on Union Street. She has been denied access to studies and numbers. She has 
questions about the 2 Clement studies. She asked the Board under the freedom of information act to 
provide the studies. The SFMTA is using the financial situation as an excuse. She requested a rehearing 
on the 4 1 Union proposal after the studies have been provided. 

Hansu Kim, SF Taxi Coalition, spoke against putting taxicabs under the Administration Division. We 
agreed to fold with SFMTA to get professional management. We are concerned that taxis will be buried. 

Peter Witt stated that as an abused victim of the Taxi Commission, he is experiencing distrust. The Taxi 
Commission dropped the ball on various reports and wasted countless dollars on other useless reports. 

Barry Taranto stated that the Executive Director declined to take the bonus offered last year but didn't 
cut back his salary. He is bothered by the new organization plan. There are a lot of issues to understand 



XI 1 1 j 

inorrni nvip ore 
U11U ilU vv WW 11U W WW WUUV/Ub^ X-/VU1U JVlillOV/ll. IIXVCUX LUA1U Clx v. 



Bill Mounsey stated that limousines are out of control. The Board doesn't know what the Taxi Detail is 
doing. Since the Taxi Commission folded, the taxi industry hasn't had any representation. 

Roland Wong stated that the front doors at stations are not equipped with automatic openers. People 
with disabilities have difficulty getting through the gates. The Forest Hill Station is a landmark so 
automatic door openers won't be added. He recommends that the SFMTA install accessible doors. 

Carl Macmurdo discussed the reorganization plan. Taxi industry issues are complex. The Chief of Staff 
will never learn the issues so unintentionally people will feed info to the titular head rather than the 
industry expert on staff. The taxi director needs staff to help them clean up the list. 

Mary McGuire stated that on the SFMTA website, people can't make advance payments on a credit card 
and the "extras" button has been disabled so you have to add bridge tolls or other charges to the tip. 
Please work with Weights & Measures to get the system back on track and re-enable those functions. 

Ed Healy expressed concern about the reorganization plan. Taxis are the most important method of 
transportation for visitors. Revisit the reorganization and see if you can accommodate us. 

Barry Korengold expressed concern about the taxi industry being folded into the Administration 
Division. Taxis deserve their own division. Tourism is San Francisco's biggest industry and taxicabs 
are an integral part of that. The plan should be reconsidered. 



Mark Gruberg stated that there is no unanimity on the issue of folding taxis into the Administration 
I )i\ ision. Overseeing the industry is an administrative task but there are profound policy issues that 
must be addressed. They need to have someone who has direct access to the Executive Director/CEO. 
Sen ice issues have been pushed aside in the discussion of Taxi Medallion Reform. The reorganization 
should be rethought. 



';-' 



Frank Fahy stated that the SFMTA needs to think about the future of parking in San Francisco. The 
City doesn't regulate private buses. It needs to regulate limousines.

Clement Street, south side, from 14th Avenue to 20 feet easterly. (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report and resolution.) (Bond Yee). 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Patricia Vaughey stated that there haven't been studies on the 2 Clement or 41 Union. She has asked for 
numbers but hasn't received any. She is disturbed by how this has been handled. There were serious 
things happening in the department. The public was denied access. This item should be tabled 

Michael Sweet stated that the issues discussed two weeks ago remain of concern for synagogue 
members. One of two proposals would take a bus up 15th Avenue. There is a preschool on 15th Avenue 
so this would effect students. 

Joninna Simpson expressed concern about the safety of congregants. This is the busiest time of year for 
the Jewish community so the lack of people at the meeting doesn't indicate a lack of interest. She echoed 
comments made by Michael Sweet and stated that 15th Avenue is congested. 

(Director Heinicke arrived) 

Jeremy Pasternak stated that safety is a concern for Funston neighbors. As of late July, SFMTA staff 
was saying that routing a bus down Clement was not a good idea so the route was bounced to Funston. 
Other options haven't gotten a full airing. 

Brian Doherty stated that elderly and disabled people live in the vicinity of the Funston stop. They deal 
with multiple buses everyday. 

Kathy Stirling asked if the Board had seen their block. We have kept the green belt clean. It is not 
acceptable to expect a small street to accommodate a large bus. 

Paul Yieh expressed concern about the Funston option. Live testing and quality of life issues have not 
been addressed. Residents haven't discussed other options with staff. 

Harry Loo stated that Muni buses are parked in front of his garage. He's against putting a terminal on 
the west side of Funston. The SFMTA needs to consider the passengers safety. It's better to let them get 
off on Geary. Park Presidio is a dangerous street to cross. He urged the SFMTA to put the bus on 14th 
Avenue or Clement. 



10 



Keith Drissell stated that he shared Mr. Loo's concern about passenger safety. Cars generally back up on 
his Street w hen they are trying to turn right. This will increase congestion and make it difficult for buses 
to turn right Residents who live there don't like the noise or clutter. 

Sue Jang stated that she had a hard time pulling out of her driveway when the bus was parked there. The 
Muni driver had to help her. Children and the elderly won't be safe. 

Smith Jang stated that he is against installing a bus stop on Funston. He has lived at 380 Funston for 46 
years and was president of many associations in Chinatown. 

Wilson Jang stated that they already have difficulties on Funston. Trucks driving on their street have 
scrapped their car. His neighbor and sister in law were both hit by cars. The area is already unsafe. 

Patricia Stirling stated that neighbors feel that the process was flawed. SFMTA staff initially stated that 
Funston Street wasn't a good idea because of poor circulation of buses. 

Karen Hindin expressed concern regarding environmental impacts. Environmental review wasn't done 
because of the fiscal emergency. Please consider the increased noise and pollution, reverberation of 



nni'pc 'inn inp l.- • j i *-»( w t*\ r f rn i/iy^»Ti *J"n/i rhp *=» ifxe^rx .. 



Elizabeth Tippin stated that Park Presidio is one of the most dangerous streets. Your own drivers say 
they don't want to go to Geary. There are other options. Funston sidewalks are narrow and not ADA 
compliant. 

Sally Gerstein stated that buses would bring a lot of traffic onto 14th Ave. It's always a challenge to turn 
right onto 14th Avenue. It will be worse with a backup of buses. Pedestrians are at risk. It is a very 
difficult comer. 

Eric Potashner stated that it's important for emergency services to not be interrupted. He urged the 
SFMTA to connect with the police and fire departments before proceeding 

Chris Mcintosh stated that there are children and elderly people who live on 14th Ave. 

On motion to approve the Funston Ave. option: 

ADOPTED: AYES -Nolan 

NAYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, and Oka 

ABSENT -McCray 

The motion failed adoption.

The Board requested that staff further develop all feasible options, especially #2, #4 and #5, seek 
community input and return to the Board at the October 20 meeting. 

Director Beach requested that staff provide the historic connectivity between the 2 Clement and 38 
Geary lines. 

12. Presentation and discussion of the plans for a new Transbay Terminal. (Explanatory documents 
include a slide presentation.) (Ken McDonald) 

Item 12 was removed from the agenda.

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 



-Special Recognition Award 

-Report on Safety & Security 

-Update on the status of the 2 Clement terminus 

-Ongoing Activities 

Executive Director/CEO Ford presented Special Recognition Awards to Mark Rudnicki, civil 
engineer, Capital Programs and Construction; Jim Campbell, transit planner, Transit Division; 
Duane Allen, operator, Cable Car Division. 

Mr. Ford discussed the message signs on Fell and Oak streets and the BART/Muni senior and 
disabled pass pilot program. 

Director Lee arrived. 

Julie Kirschbaum, manager, Service Planning, provided an update on the 2 Clement terminus. 

Jim Dougherty, chief safety officer, provided a status report on recent safety efforts. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

William Pearson asked the SFMTA to consider another route for the 2 Clement. 15 Avenue is 
a densely populated street and a bus loop will compromise the safety of Beth Shalom students. 

Adeline Mueller urged the SFMTA to reconsider 15 th Avenue as the terminus. Beth Shalom has 
six pick up and drop off times throughout the day. There is a lot of pedestrian and vehicle 
traffic. There are safety issues with having a bus at a preschool entrance. 

Lee Schwager stated that he's glad to hear that Muni is considering use of electric trolleys but 
proposed an alternative route that would provide a direct connection. A terminal on Funston 
would be required. 15 th Avenue is a narrow street. 

Brian Doherty expressed appreciation for coming up with an "outside the box" solution that 
doesn't impact the side avenues. He encouraged the SFMTA to do a better job of community 
outreach. An electric trolley may be the most palatable solution. 

Leonart Vandoneude expressed concern about additional traffic on 1 5 Avenue because it is 
dense and people travel at high speed. Tacoma Street exits onto 15 th Avenue and adding a bus 
will impact traffic causing safety concerns for children on that street. The planned construction 
at 15 th Avenue and Lake Street will further impact safety. 

Herbert Weiner stated that 15 th Avenue residents have raised a legitimate concern. Whatever 
avenue you choose to route Muni will be met with opposition. He suggests placing the project 
on hold and coming up with a workable plan. He suggested that this bus be synchronized with 
the 28 line so people on California won't have to walk far. 



Marc Soloraan stated that he likes electrification but there was no capital discussion about how 
to install electric trolley lines. Installation costs will pay for themselves in five years through 
reduced fuel costs. 

S. Citizens 1 Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, chairman, Citizen's Advisory Council, presented the CAC's recommendations. 

Chairman Nolan asked the secretary to call the Consent Calendar and Item 14 due to the large 
number of comment cards. He stated that the once Item 14 was complete the Board would hear 
Item 9 and the remainder of the calendar. 

9. Public Comment 

Francisco Da Costa suggested that the SFMTA look at asset management and infrastructure. 
SFMTA constituents need a quarterly report on software. SFMTA needs to fight for ADA 
improvements although there is some progress being made to accommodate the elderly and 
disabled. 

Hansu Kim, Taxi Coalition, commented that while the City is looking to raise revenue it is 
continuing to give away taxi medallions. In almost every major city taxi medallions are sold. 
We have a privatized system that has decided to give away this asset with no public benefit. The 
SFMTA needs to re-evaluate how medallions are issued. They should be given to individual taxi 
drivers, not to companies or corporations. 

Barry Korengold, SF Cab Drivers Association, stated that there are 30 taxi medallions that are 
not being given out because there is a shortage of staff in the taxi division. Drivers are losing 
thousands of dollars. Staff will be even more bogged down when permits are renewed. 

Mary McGuire stated that there is a conflict with the paratransit debit card pilot program and the 
Dept. of Weights and Measures (DWM). The DWM forced a change in the software which 
means meters now freeze up. This causes cabs to be held out of service and the drivers are the 
victims. 

Barry Taranto stated that there is a public benefit to having experienced drivers. He expressed 
concern about taxi division oversight. The taxi division is being treated like a step child in foster 
care. Hearing officers are slow. It is not right that medallions are delayed. Medallion approvals 
should come before the Board. 

Tariq Mehmoud stated that many people didn't put their name on the taxi medallion list. People 
who aren't driving have a medallion. The list is not in good shape. Medallions shouldn't be 
given for free to anybody. There should be no shortcuts in the process. He suggested that a 
proposition be placed on the ballot to sell them. 



Tom Radulovich, Livable City, stated that budgets are difficult for every transit agency and 
revenues are coming in slower than anticipated. The SFMTA usually waits too long and then the 
only options are service cuts and fare hikes. He urged the SFMTA to begin discussions so that 
something can be placed on the ballot. 

Tekle McKabe stated that Ms. Hayashi is working to organize taxi drivers. Please continue this 
work because we are ready for Prop. K reform. 

Mark Gruberg stated that cabs are being kept off the street and shifts have been cancelled due to 
the problem with the Dept. of Weights and Measures. This equipment was approved and it can 
handle debit and credit cards. The dispute with DWM puts cab drivers in the middle. This needs 
to be worked out to ensure that cab drivers are not hurt. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR 
ACTION AS STATED BY THE SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY 
ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL 
CALENDAR ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th 
FLOOR. 

CONSENT CALENDAR 

10. All matters listed hereunder constitute a Consent Calendar, are considered to be routine by

PUB I IC COMMENT: 

Paul Yieh stated that better solutions and technology are needed rather than extending the current 
contract. 

Ruslan Filipau expressed concern about the number of drivers who run red lights and the impact on 
safety. Some of the cameras don't use digital film. It doesn't make sense to extend this contract. 
More than one successful ticket per day needs to be issued. This is a great program but it can't run 
OB outdated technology.

REGULAR CALENDAR 

11. Approving and adopting amendments to Article 1100 of Division II of the Transportation 
Code, regulating motor vehicles for hire. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, 
resolution and amendments.) (Debra Johnson) 



PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Mark Gruberg expressed support for the changes. The regulations are an ongoing project. 
Section 1 104 (c) (3), which sets forth applicant requirements, seems to be inconsistent. 

Barry Taranto stated that the changes are well written and suggested clarifying the section Mr. 
Gruberg mentioned. The change to section 1 106 (O) (5) (death of medallion holder) shouldn't 
include a tax on a long-term lease fee. Taxi drivers shouldn't go to a hearing officer but should 
appear before the SFMTA Board. The review process should be expedited. 

Hansu Kim, Taxi Coalition, expressed support. We have to continue to adopt new rules as the 
taxi industry evolves. We need to leverage technology. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that drivers are being given a half-million dollar benefit after being on a 
wait list. There are a lot of fake waybills. The driving requirement should be ten years rather 
than five. Every person on the wait list should present their waybills every year. They should 
pay a fee to fund an inspector to review their waybills. 

Mary McGuire stated that hearing officers are slow to review cases. There should be a pre- 
approval process similar to a home loan. If there's no apparent problem, then there isn't a need 
to go through waybills with a fine tooth comb. It's not right to have 30 medallions out of 
service. Medallions must be turned in within 20 days if the holder passes away.

of Prop. E. He questioned materials and supplies and equipment and maintenance figures. He 
hopes the SFMTA will consider revenue sources and make the difficult decisions. 

Rafael Cabrera, TWU Local 250-A, stated that the State needs to fund the SFMTA.

Mr. Ford discussed the SFMTA's response to the recent closure of the San Francisco-Oakland 
Bay Bridge.

project. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Rafael Cabrera, TWU Local 250 A, stated that the union is not against a good safety device 
when it is used as a proper tool. Sometimes on-board cameras can be triggered by an operator 
shifting gears. The Agency needs to take into consideration the maintenance of vehicles. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Emile Lawrence stated that he had previously requested the keys to every bathroom paid for by the 
City and used by Muni operators. He provided the complaint that he had submitted to the Sunshine 
Ordinance Task Force (SOTF) regarding improper cancellation of meetings. He added that would 
like to see the Executive Director at the SOTF meeting. He stated that the SFMTA doesn't issue 
citations to operators, cops or public health officials but does issue them to taxi drivers. 

Nathan Dwiri, Yellow Cab, discussed programs implemented at Yellow Cab. He stated that he 
has provided a S500 bonus to drivers for their good service. The program hasn't been entirely 
successful because they are not able to respond to the demand for service. They don't have an 
adequate supply of cabs. They are doing all they can to make it easy for drivers to be responsive. 

Hansu Kim, San Francisco Taxi Coalition, stated that the SFMTA is looking to raise revenue. 
Their coalition believes that money can be raised by selling taxi medallions. There are hundreds 
of drivers who are willing to buy or sell their medallions. A driver on the list today will have to 
wait over 25 years for a medallion. The SFMTA should make sure that medallions go to working 
drivers and not to corporations.

REGULAR CALENDAR 

11. Presentation and discussion of the SFMTA's Operating Budget for FY2010. (Explanatory 
i iiM^iirnpntc include — slide "rsssntaticn.) (Scnali Bcsc) 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, Finance and Information Technology presented the staff 
report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Emile Lawrence stated that the budget is an unmitigated disaster. SFMTA leaders are squeezing 
taxis for more fees. He wanted to know which employees will be cut. The SFMTA has multiple 
contracts that do not include any reduction of benefits. The Agency is going to pay $60 million 
for radios but people use cell phones. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that city will be angry if parking hours are extended. Tickets should be 
written for expired meters. The SFMTA should give taxi drivers the chance to write tickets. 
Drivers have to wait 25-30 years for a medallion. Selling medallions will create equity. 

Barry Taranto stated that the Agency should reduce work orders, particularly from the police 
department. Tow-away zones and meters should be increased to 7 pm but later times will hurt 
nighttime businesses. The taxi staff is small and the Agency needs to give them more money. 
He requested a copy of the taxi division budget. 

Francisco Da Costa stated that staff decisions are adversely impacting the constituents of San 
Francisco. He asked the Agency to collect data to determine how many constituents are seniors, 
or physically challenged, and how many take public transportation. The SFMTA needs to 
guarantee their safety. The Muni gas spill years ago impacted our carbon footprint and impacted 
our watershed. 



Hansu Kim, Taxi Coalition, stated that medallions are extremely valuable and are a potential 
"cash cow" if handled properly. Medallions are being given away in a dysfunctional manner that 
creates a difficult entry and exit for drivers. The SFMTA has an opportunity to resolve this 
problem and reassess how medallions are issued. He suggested selling medallions only to taxi 
drivers who have a certain number of years of experience. 

Herbert Weiner wondered why corporations haven't been taxed, management furloughs haven't 
been implemented or why salary caps haven't been placed on managers. He asked why the 
Agency hasn't explored charging bicyclists parking or license fees. The SFMTA needs to take 
assertive measures to protect public transportation. 

Nathan Dwiri stated that requests for cab service have steadily increased over time and they 
don't have the capacity to respond to the demand. They need a better way to allocate resources. 

Tom Radulovich stated that the de facto service cuts that occurred in the past were the service 
equivalent of rolling blackouts. Achieving 74% on time performance was great but job cuts 
place the Agency at risk of backsliding. The SFMTA should consider the Charter which offers 
guidance. Transit First puts riders and bicyclists ahead of motorists. Budget priorities should 
reflect the SFMTA mission and the Transit First policy. Extending mcLci hours hiis 
sustainability notes, cuts down on congestion, and improves service. 

12. Presentation and discussion of the Proof of Payment Study and fare payment patterns. 
(Explanatory documents include a staff report and study.) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, Finance and Information Technology presented the staff 
report. 

13. Presentation and discussion of the SFMTA's fare evasion efforts. (Explanatory documents 
include a slide presentation.) (James Dougherty) 

Antonio Parra, deputy chief, Safety, Security and Enforcement, presented the staff report. 

Items 12 and 13 were called together. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto suggested the chief financial officer learn how taxi drivers earn money. The issue 
of rear door boarding needs to be decided. Officers should be deployed to where the most 
violations occur. Officers need to be properly trained and customer-service friendly. 

Irwin Lum, President, TWU 250-A, stated that the rear door boarding policy should be 
abandoned as it sends a confused message to the public. No one wants to ride in the back of a 
bus due to safety issues. The SFMTA and the police department need to work with the public to 
ensure safety. Rear door boarding speeds loading and reduces dwell time. 



14. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to issue a Request for Qualifications/Request for 
Proposals for Contract No. 1240, Design-Build Contract for the Radio System Replacement 
Project and to negotiate a contract with the selected proposer for an amount not to exceed 
$60,000,000, and a contract completion date three years from the Notice to Proceed. 
(Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Carter Rohan)

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Ongoing Activities 

Director of Administration, Taxis and Accessible Services Debra Johnson, acting on behalf of 
the Executive Director/CEO Nathaniel Ford presented the report. She reviewed the derailment 
that occurred in the Twin Peaks Tunnel this morning. She expressed appreciation to Deputy 
Chief Antonio Parra for his work and introduced Deputy Chief John Murphy. Ms. Johnson 
presented an update on the FY10 budget, the Bicycle Plan injunction, the N Judah Rail 
Improvement project, the Market Street Traffic Diversion Plan and the communications 
campaign for the December 5 service changes. 

Director McCray arrived. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Branton Burke asked if the changes being implemented on December 5 were part of the TEP or 
if it was due to the fiscal crisis reduction. It appears the TEP is being implemented and tiiat cuts 
aren't being made in response to the fiscal crisis. He called 3 1 1 but they have no information 
and he was told to call Muni. He stated that the SFMTA is 17 or 18 days away from 
implementation and it's a disaster. He has also spoken with staff about the 37 Corbett. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Hansu Kim, San Francisco Taxi Coalition, discussed taxi medallion reform. The taxi town hall 
meetings are contentious but productive. A majority of people are trying to reach consensus on a 
plan. There is an opportunity to raise millions of dollars by selling medallions to taxi drivers. 

Richard Rothman stated that the transit police aren't needed at the subway stations but they are 
needed at 16 th and Mission. He expressed concern that the 9 San Bruno limited doesn't stop at 
SF General Hospital. The clients and staff need a stop at that location. Bicycles should be 
licensed. 

Branton Burke stated that he has sent multiple e-mails in regard to the December 5 changes. 
Muni doesn't seem to want to tell their customers in advance the new schedule for the 37 
Corbett. He also discussed complaints regarding the 37 Corbett service. In the evening there are 
supposed to be two buses but often there is only one bus. This is difficult for people who are 
dependent on that line. 



Tone I ee stated that he has been a taxi driver for many years. He submitted a transportation plan 
that w ill solve the city's parking problem. The plan will also save citizen's transportation 
problems and can result in $700 million if fully deployed. 

Marlene Tran stated that that she has made extensive efforts to make Muni more language 
accessible. Chinatown and Visitation Valley residents are protesting the "top down" decision 
regarding service. The community has not been involved in any decisions regarding the 9 
Express San Bruno line and they are concerned that several stops are being deleted. 

Mr. Lum expressed concern over lack of community input over changes to Muni. Two years ago 
voters approved Prop A, which was supposed to generate $26m annually. A fare increase was 
imposed but it didn't result in improved service. Many in the audience are present today to 
express concern about changes to the 9 San Bruno. 

Susanna Yee stated that she boards Muni at either the Rutland or Arleta stops but both are being 
deleted. There is a high crime rate in the Visitation Valley and riders will have to walk further. 
Their safety concerns must be addressed. 

Paul Choy stated that he was surprised to read about the 9 San Bruno changes and is concerned 
about Muni's failure to engage the public about the changes. Riders on the 9 San Bruno Express 
lines experience overcrowding and long delays. The working class and immigrants are Muni 
riders and they demand that their issues be addressed. He hopes that the SFMTA will seek input 
from the community. 

Irwin Lum, president, TWU-Local 250-A stated that 250-A understands the community's 
concerns. People with cars make a choice to drive whereas working people don't have the 
ability to make that choice. Drivers should pay more in the evening and on weekends. Most 
riders can't afford to pay more or have reduced service. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR 
ACTION AS STATED BY THE SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY 
ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL 
CALENDAR ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th

-Special Recognition Award 
-Update on Safety & Security efforts 



-Ongoing Activities 

Chairman Nolan welcomed Carter Rohan, senior director, Capital Programs and Construction 
who would be serving as Executive Director/CEO in the absence of Mr. Ford. 

Jim Dougherty, Chief Safety Officer presented an update on the SFMTA's safety and security 
efforts. 

Directors Beach and Heinicke arrived. 

Acting ED/CEO Rohan presented special recognition awards to Terrence Fahey, associate 
engineer, Track Overhead and Engineering section, Capital Programs and Construction Division; 
Rita Donahue, senior Clerk Typist TransitSafe Unit, Safety Security & Enforcement Division; 
and Milton Khuu, electronic technician, Presidio Division, Transit Operations. 

Mr. Rohan reviewed the status of taxi reform and the bicycle injunction. 

Director of Administration, Taxis and Accessible Services Debra Johnson provided an update on 
the status of the December 5 service changes. Julie Kirschbaum, manager, Service Planning, 
discussed changes to the 89 Laguna Honda route. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold stated that he is aggravated and distrustful of the inattentiveness. The closed 
captioning on the television in the meeting wasn't working. Also, two and a half months ago Mr. 
Planthold reported an assault on a disabled passenger but has yet to receive a response. Over the 
years, there have been other security issues that Mr. Planthold has presented that have not been 
addressed. He also mentioned that many cyclists do not wear helmets and ride on the sidewalks. 
The Board is avoiding the issue of raising meter hours beyond 6 p.m. 

Mark Gruberg, United Taxicab Workers stated the taxi reform process was set in motion by the 
Mayor when he broke his word regarding Prop. K. UT W has submitted a proposal that would 
redeem the Mayor's promise and maintain Prop. K. Mr. Gruberg reviewed the main points of 
their proposal. Drivers lack benefits. UTW wants to speed up the wait for a medallion and 
would like to see the bulk of monies raised from the industry used for the benefit of the industry. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, chairman, Citizen's Advisory Council, presented the report. 

9. Public Comment 

Fred Bekele, Impark, stated that they submitted a bid for the management of parking garages. 
After a long, costly and transparent process, they were notified that we had won group A of the 
garages but yesterday they received an e-mail stating that the SFMTA was going to reject all bids 



BUM of the Hi u.li number of participation by private operators. Mr. Bekele requested that the 
Board look into the decision to reject the bids. 

Ward 1 homas echoed the comments made by Mr. Bekele. They were pleased by the transparent 
bid process but all bids have been rejected. 25% of their revenue would go to an LBE business. 
Mr. I 'homas expressed concern that there will be fewer bidders if this goes out to bid again. He 
asked the Board to look into what took place. 

Peter Bhrlicb stated that the Dec. 5 service changes will be a negative historic moment in Muni's 
history. He is opposed to the elimination of 14 L stop at 14 l and Mission the stop at SF General 
Hospital for the 9 San Bruno Line. With the elimination of the 26 Valencia line there will be no 
accessible service between Randall and Balboa Park. Riders will have to rely on the J Church 
line. 

Hansu Kim, SF Taxi Coalition, stated that taxi reform will preserve the nature of Prop. K and fix 
the system in ways that should have happened years ago. Medallions are valuable because they 
can be handed to a company or another driver. By renting a medallion, medallion holders can 
receive two to three thousand dollars per month. Prop. K wasn't intended to create an 
entitlement system. 

Bebe Pubill, Enforcement Supervisor, DPT, stated that layoffs will have a crippling effect on 
safety and public service. Accidents on the Bay Bridge create traffic jams and congestion. 
Parking control officers pay for themselves and help bring in revenue. 

Sterling Haywood, Parking Control Officer, wondered how laying off parking control officers 
will save the city money. The city will lose ten million in revenue by laying off PCO's. In 
addition to tickets, PCO's make sure that everyone is safe. 

Danielle Wiseman, PCO, stated that she'll be laid off in January. PCO's are self sufficient and 
bring in revenue but bus drivers are still being hired. 

Herbert Weiner stated that the service changes are terrible. The SFMTA gives no quarter but 
steals ever quarter it can. The TEP rested on its laurels. He stated that Nat Ford should go on 
furlough and make the same sacrifices as others to save money. Assessments on commercial 
properties have gone uncollected forever. 

Necole Armstrong stated that she's one of the 24 PCO's that will be laid off. She wondered why 
bus operators were going to be hired when service was being cut. PCO's generate revenue. 

Sue Vaughan questioned why PCO's were being laid off when they make their own salary and 
bring in revenue. There are safety issues at 2 nd and Bryant and at California and Presidio when 
exiting passengers are blocked by a line of cars. The Board needs to adopt a recommendation to 
expand parking meter hours. 

Branton Burke stated he has sent numerous e-mails about the 37 Corbett and is fed up with 

3 



missed runs and drivers who don't show up for work. It's time for the Board and for Mr. Ford to 
do your jobs. 

Carl Macmurdo, Taxi Medallion Holders Association, stated that the sale of 100 medallions can 
result in $28 million in revenue. City could sell maybe 30 medallions per year. The applicant 
list is totally dysfunctional. Current system doesn't allow equity building. We don't have an 
exit strategy. 

Peter Witt stated that taxi customers have been waiting for twenty years. One taxi stand at the 
ballpark serves 25,000 people. He questioned whether taxi revenues should feed Muni's black 
hole. Reform will be for the government and the greedy medallion holders who don't drive a cab 
and not the people. 

Dan Hinds, National Cab Company, stated that Prop. K means different things to different 
people. Everyone supports the idea that medallions should go to working drivers. Drivers don't 
make a great deal of money. Older drivers are afraid of being kicked to the curb. People should 
have the ability to exit from the system and be provided the opportunity to get a medallion. 

Vice Chairman McCray called for a halt to all actions regarding the RFP for the management of 
parking garages until a Parking Authority Commission meeting could be held to discuss the 
matter. Chairman Nolan asked staff to schedule a Parking Authority Commission meeting on 
January 5, 2010. 

Director Heinicke requested a response to the issues raised by parking control officers.

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Rafael Cabrera, TWU Local 250-A stated that there are issues with the report. In 2005, the city

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Mark Gruberg stated that the provision relating to drivers being allowed to refuse service is 
being changed. "Drunks" are one of the biggest problems as they are boisterous to the point of 
aggressiveness. A shift is ruined when a patron throws up in the cab. It should be left to the 
driver to determine whether to refuse a passenger based on the safety to the driver or the cab. 
Drivers must have a means to refuse certain passengers and need to be provided the latitude to 
make the decision. 

Ms. Hayashi suggested adding "for a lawful purpose" to the final clause of Section 1 108 E, 
Section 1 to address the concern expressed. 

On motion to amend Section 1 108 E, Section 1, to add the phrase "and for a lawful purpose":
